Frequently asked questions about semiconductors as an electronic building material

What is a semiconductor?

Electronic semiconductors have properties of conductors, but also of insulators. Their conductivity increases in relation to temperature and decreases again when the temperature decreases. Semiconductor components used to be made mostly of germanium and are now mostly made of silicon.

What are semiconductors used for?

Semiconductors are used in a wide variety of industrial sectors and are among the fixed components of numerous technical devices. For example, they can be found in computers, electronic household appliances, smartphones and various embedded solutions. In these, they are installed in the form of microcontrollers, integrated circuits (Ics), optoelectronic components and processors. The automotive industry also benefits from semiconductor technology in e-mobility.

Why are semiconductors so important?

Increasingly, semiconductors are now being used for AI processes, as well as in the entertainment industry. Demand is enormous, constantly increasing, and making the active components more and more precious worldwide. Combined with problems in production facilities, bottlenecks in availability have become a widespread affliction.
