How an Intel CPU is created: From Sand to Silicon - Making of a Chip
Every modern PC is based on them but not many people really know how a CPU is made. Intel has now assembled an illustrated explanation about the individual steps of the processor production.
Intel is explaining the manufacturing of a processor. The illustrated presentation goes by the name From Sand to Silicon "Making of a Chip”. In our gallery you can find the pictures shown on the foils and of course the appropriate explanations that have been attached by Intel. So if you are interested to know how sand is transformed into such a high-tech device like a Central Processing Unit and what steps are necessary to achieve this, just take a look at the shots below. You can also find the pictures in Intel's pressroom of course.
Another great insight into the creation of processors can be gained from the pictures of the Globalfoundries cleanroom. Those professional systems and production plans bear only little resemblance to a self-made CPU like the BMOW.
