- First Sand is used to grow Silicon Ingots
- Then the ingots are sliced into wafers of sizes ranging from 25.4mm up to
- Companies either make their own wafers from ingot or buy it from a wafer vendor. These companies include but are not limited to Intel and Nvidia. They turn the wafers into chips used in CPUs and graphic cards etc.
- Companies such as Samsung, Apple, Tesla use those chips in their electroncis such as cell phones, and autos.
Also the Internet of Things is driving groth of Epitaxial Silicon and Silicon on Insulator (SOI) wafers.
