Analog Devices Celebrates $1B Expansion of Semiconductor Facility
Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a global semiconductor leader, marked the more than $1 billion investment the company has made to expand its semiconductor wafer fab in Beaverton, Oregon. The Beaverton site, built in 1978, is ADI’s largest wafer fabrication facility by volume and serves customers in critical industries, such as industrial, automotive, communications, consumer, and healthcare.
The facility investment expands cleanroom space to about 118,000 square feet and nearly doubles the internal manufacturing of products running on the 180-nanometer technology node and above. It is also expected to create hundreds of new, long-term employment opportunities, a significant increase to ADI’s current roughly 950 employees in Oregon.
U.S. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon said, “This announcement strengthens a signature industry in Oregon by solidifying semiconductors’ place in the Silicon Forest and beyond, creating statewide impact with new good-paying jobs in Beaverton and rippling out to benefit the entire state economy.”
