Foundry is the fancy semiconductor word for factory. You have to admit, silicon foundry does sound cool.
From SkyWater’s website
The SkyWater facility was originally established by Minnesota based Control Data Corporation (CDC) in the 1980s. The CDC fab was acquired by Cypress Semiconductor in 1991. During the Cypress era, the facility was expanded and upgraded multiple times, keeping pace with Moore’s Law into the late 2000s and was known for being a US-based production facility that was competitive with Asian-based fabs. SkyWater spun-off from Cypress in 2017 with private equity backing from Minnesota based Oxbow Industries.
I love the layout of the course, you did a perfect job Matt. Building up the foundation and then getting into the depths of it. Having everything lined up. I love the walkthroughs at the end of each section. I did the work and then I looked back, maybe there's a better way and in your videos you point out some other interesting things as well so that was really helpful. So yes I love the course.
