Potential Engagement Models for Outsourcing
Transfer of existing product including customer process to X-FAB facility.
Transfer of tools or tool set
Existing tools or complete tool sets can be transferred from the sending fab into the receiving X-FAB site - as consigned tools or sold tools.
Investment into captive capacity
Outsourcing customers can secure capacity at X-FAB through investment into “own” tools.
Under certain circumstances X-FAB could analyze the option of taking over the existing customer fab rather than transferring products and processes to an X-FAB facility.
Existing products are re-designed using X-FAB Open Platform process technologies and thus are “ported” to a process available at X-FAB to save time compared to a complete product transfer requiring a custom technology transfer.
