Administration and Testing:

The administration building is unusual.

A large Materials Handling section must deal with the range of chemicals and materials used in IC manufacture. These require special handling and documentation, as do the chips they ultimately produce.

An extensive Final Test Lab is required to verify the millions of operations the chip should perform. If chips do not perform properly, in the Failure Analysis Lab they may be taken apart atom by atom to figure out why.
