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.
Everyone here is quite fond of the Silicon Run films. We use them a lot. Tarrant County Junior College
The students and I appreciated Silicon Run Lite very much. It is well done and suited for the classes I teach. I appreciate your efforts to make this information available to young people in an effective presentation.Mrs. Linda M. Wilkins

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.
