The time has finally come: the chip factory of the future is complete. At least that's what Bosch calls it. In fact, the factory in Dresden has a lot to offer. The construction cost over a billion euros, and series production of the 300-millimeter semiconductors is scheduled to start in July. The production is state-of-the-art.

The office and production area of ​​the new Bosch chip factory covers an area of ​​around 72,000 square meters. Up to 700 employees will produce semiconductor elements here. Of course, with such a magnitude the boss doesn't just press the start button to make it run. The first silicon chips have been produced in Dresden since the beginning of the year. They are primarily intended for the automotive industry. In a multi-stage process, the production steps have become increasingly complex. The chip factory is now officially open and the test phase is over.

Because series production is scheduled to start in July, the official opening of the plant in Dresden is already on June 7th. Bosch is still looking for employees in many areas, including specialized engineers. The team expects a state-of-the-art workplace, if you believe Bosch: The company calls the new plant the “chip factory of the future”, and there are good reasons for that.

Bosch practices networked production in its chip factory

With the chip factory, Bosch is reacting to the rapidly increasing demand for semiconductors and Dresden has made a name for itself as a location. The Saxon city and the surrounding area is known as a center for microelectronics, the nickname "Silicon Saxony" based on Silicon Valley has become established. The naming is based on a surprising event. You can hear what challenges await engineers in this podcast episode of “Technology on the Ear”.
