Who would have thought that silicon would come to affect the 21st century in a big way as it has? The in genius production of semi conductors used in a spectra of electronic devices from the big and most powerful device on earth, the supercomputer, to the small electronic toy car. The production of semiconductors has therefore played out to include one of the biggest manufacturing industries in the world with half of all of them based in China due to cheap labor and cheap and inexhaustible raw material. The other half is distributed in Far East and Pacific Asia in Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan, Philippines and Singapore and also significantly portion in the United States. The following is an intricate categorization of semiconductor companies.
