Not far from the Fab 8 sight is a building that houses some GlobalFoundries employees as well as the ITDC. The ITDC is GlobalFoundries' Integration Testing and Development Center. Some of you might recon back to a day when you saw Intel employees walking around in "bunny suits" moving wafers around a facility manually. (Not the best video to illustrate that, but funny nonetheless.) Well, in the days of a modern fabrication facility no person(s) is touching a wafer unless they absolutely have to. That means that wafers are moved around from stock, to tool, to tool, to tool, etc., by robots.
