Keywords:World Fab Watch? foundry database? 300mm fabs?

The industry group Semiconductor Equipment Materials International (SEMI) has said it has acquired the World Fab Watch database and the 300mm Fab report from Strategic Marketing Associates. The acquisition includes ownership of the SMA Website.

SEMI and SMA have collaborated for 13 years on the joint marketing and sales of World Fab Watch, and in the past year collaboration has extended to a strategic partnership to jointly share in fab research activities. Christian Gregor Dieseldorff, formerly of SMA, joined SEMI one year ago as senior analyst and director of market research and he will lead fab research activities at SEMI.

Under the terms of the agreement, George Burns, president of SMA, will continue to advise and assist SEMI in fab research for the complete suite of fab information products he developed and has now transferred to SEMI. SEMI said it would publish a quarterly analysis of fab and capital spending trends in Quarterly Fab Report and a monthly newsletter called International Wafer Fab News.
