SEMI didn't report on how this trend might affect the market for back-end equipment, but new life for 200-mm fabs
could have implications for IC test systems.
The news is not good for the Single European Sky, and in particular for the establishment of functional airspace blocks (FABs
), which divide up the sky in terms of traffic flows rather than national borders.
