Sand to Semiconductors

AI requires more Silicon capacity
Deep in the supply chain, some wizards turn sand into perfect diamond-structured crystal disks of silicon, which are necessary for the entire semiconductor supply chain.

They are part of the semiconductor supply chain, making Silicon Sand almost a thousand times more valuable.

The glimmer … Read More
