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.
Extremely well done. It is very informative to see the creation of chips at this extremely low level.Gerald I. Isaacs
The Silicon Run film series has become a standard of instruction at Level One Communications for several years now. Because we are a ‘fabless’ semiconductor design and test facility, the Silicon Run series has supplemented our staff with the wafer fabrication and assembly technology many typically don’t get a chance to observe. Thanks for the behind the scenes view of this marvelous semiconductor industry.Dan Hamilton
I have found films like Silicon Run’s very valuable to physics students. Physics students spend most of their time in classrooms so their exposure to physics is entirely theoretical. They know these theoretical principles play an important role in modern technology; however, they have little idea how physics is implemented at the product level. Invariably, they find the fabrication of the computer chip very fascinating.Peter Y. Yu

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.
