Sanmina-SCI sees growing<br>semiconductor equipment market
EMS-provider Sanmina-SCI sees growth from semiconductor equipment manufacturers that are beginning to outsource more.
Sanmina-SCI got into the semiconductor equipment segment for about eight years ago. Sanmina-SCI made boards for semiconductor equipment manufacturers and then they got into the module assembly making modules like power boxes that have 100 different parts in them. Sanmina-SCI later started doing design work for OEMs and began building more complex modules with 5,000-6,000 part numbers. Today Sanmina-SCI builds assemblies that are used in vapor deposition, wafer metrology, water etching and ion implantation systems for equipment used in chip production, Vahid Ghassemian, general manager for the industrial and semiconductor division told Purchasing.com.
