Silicon Run Productions has been producing award winning educational films about semiconductor and computer manufacturing since 1986, with its two most recent films exploring the exciting fields of Nanotechnology and MEMS (microelectromechanical systems). Each film features live industrial footage and illustrates technical processes using vivid animations and graphics. All Silicon Run titles are available on DVD and by streaming. »read more
Our nine award winning films explore the fascinating process of semiconductor manufacturing from A to Z, using animation and on-site industrial footage. Each film also comes with a companion quiz, which serves as an excellent tool for students to test their knowledge.
The SILICON RUN I and II films I purchased long ago have been seen in every semester that we have taught IC fabrication. The interest I see in every student that watches it is so satisfying to me. Now that we are officially making CMOS devices, the films relate closely with many steps we are doing.Laureen Rose

Very good films. I use them every year for Computer Architecture. I show them early in the course and refer to them later on. James R. Case
I’ve worked the majority of my career working at various semiconductor companies on design and test issues, but I’ve never had the opportunity to observe and understand the detail of fab processing until I watched Silicon Run I. If you haven’t seen it, you’re missing a lot!Guy Perry

Our final addition to the Silicon Run Series will be a film on nanoelectronics. Principal investigator Ruth Carranza, with sponsoring research organization Pellet Productions, has been awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation to begin pre-production.
