Wafer prices to soar next year
Itís the thin edge of the wedge
Prices of 12-inch silicon wafers may rise by as much as 20 percent in 2017.
Thatís whatís being reported by Taiwanese wire Digitimes, which says that suppliers of the raw blank silicon have told UMC, Micron and TSMC to expect the worst.
Thereís a shortage of blank silicon but obviously not of sand and even TSMC will suffer from the under supply, despite the fact that it usually gets a discount because it just churns out so many chips.
