The Digital Evolution

In 1931 Thomas Edison confessed: "I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that." WACKER did not wait. Back in 1954, WACKER began the systematic research and development of hyperpure polysilicon. Today, over 3,500 employees produce 80,000 tons of polysilicon per year, making it world market leader in quantity, purity and service quality.

Polysilicon – Enabler of the Digital Transformation

Digitalization is dominating many areas of our everyday lives. Its technologies can be found in so many of the devices and applications we use on a regular basis. They are innovative and undergo constant development. At the heart of these technologies are microchips. Microchips are central to all these applications. Find out how such a high-performance microchip is created.
