Abundance:

Silicon is the second most abundant element on the earth’s crust. It makes up a major portion of clay, granite, quartz (SiO2), and sand.

Costs of Production:

Cost of pure silicon production

$5.4/100g

Cost of bulk silicon production

$0.14/100g

Costs of Manufacturing and Pricing Policies:

Our manufacturing plant located in Silicon Valley, California is a leader in efficient production of silicon software. Our determination to achieve such efficiency has lead us to become one of the most economically competitive companies producing microprocessors and microcontrollers in North America.
