Potential Engagement Models for Outsourcing

Product transfer

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.

Fab transfer

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.

Product Porting

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.
