Skyworks Solutions’ GaAs facility located in Newbury Park, California recently converted its entire high volume wafer fabrication from a four to six inch wafer size. This was accomplished while running full production volume throughout the entire conversion. It was critical that the execution of the six inch conversion was seamless to the customer and the business. The people who put their heart and soul into the wafer size conversion were the primary reason for success. Project management skills, meticulous planning, system implementation, team work and precision execution were required to meet company goals and convert the factory per schedule and within budget.
