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.
Good, quick overviews of the technology. They serve for both those who need only a general knowledge of the technology and those who need a birdseye view of the whole process in order to study it in further detail.Marek Sosnowski

These films are very well done. We use them in introductory courses, and my wife also uses them in her high school classes to attract students to careers in science and engineering.Wayne Anderson
