University Wafer is a Leading Supplier of Silicon Wafers and other Substrates.
One of the most tedious processes in supplying the researchers with affordable substrates is quoting. In fact, it is so time consuming that most wafer supply firms won’t even quote a job for a small run, never-mind a single wafer.
Most researchers have experienced being ignored. They send a request, then they wait for the quote that never comes. They then send a follow-up email. And they wait some more. Finally the researcher makes the phone call. When the researcher tells the wafer vendor that they just want one wafer they are either hung-up on or provided with a ridiculously high quote and long lead-items.
But there is hope!
UniversityWafer, Inc. was created to cater to the researcher who wants small quantities and short lead-times. Our professional staff is trained to handle even the most difficult low volume requests and we pride ourselves on fast responses and turnaround.
Why buy in volume if you don’t have to?!
