Customer challenges
in the semiconductor industry

The semiconductor industry designs and manufactures semiconductors and semiconductor devices like transistors and integrated circuits. The sensitive and critical nature of such equipment and manufacturing processes requires high-quality electricity and high process continuity in order to avoid serious losses and dangerous malfunctions. 

Any interruption of critical processes will result in significant financial losses in the form of lost raw materials, lower product quality, expensive maintenance costs, and an adverse reputational impact on the supplier. 

Process interruptions may be induced by the supply grid or by non-linear loads like Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs). High harmonic currents generated by VFDs in the plant may cause nuisance tripping or burn electronic cards. Protection against such interruptions is vital for profitable businesses in critical process industries.
