Jan. 17, 2023 /SemiMedia/ -- According to reports, ADI is spending $1 billion to upgrade its semiconductor factory near Beaverton, Oregon, which will double its production capacity.

“We are making significant investments to modernize our existing manufacturing space, retool equipment to increase productivity, and expand our overall infrastructure by adding 25,000 square feet of additional cleanroom space,” said Fred Bailey, vice president of factory operations at ADI.

The report pointed out that the factory mainly produces high-end analog chips that can be used for heat source management and thermal control. The target market is mainly in the fields of industry and automobiles. This can avoid the impact to a certain extent under the current weak demand in the consumer electronics market.
