Micron will build a “megafab” in Clay, New York (near Syracuse) to produce lead-edge memory chips in high volume using the most advanced semiconductor manufacturing processes and tools, including extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography
Micron said it will invest $20 billion in the project by 2030 and up to $100 billion over the next 20-plus years. The company is looking to secure support from the recently-passed CHiPS legislation.
Micron’s central New York site could eventually include four 600,000 square foot cleanrooms, accounting for a total of 2.4 million square feet of cleanroom space – the size of approximately 40 U.S. football fields. Site preparation work will start in 2023 with construction beginning in 2024.
