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 quality, well-made, informative and interesting. Silicon Run II exposes students to a manufacturing process that they would otherwise not see. Rejean Barriacult

I market semiconductors and I had no idea of the complexity involved in their manufacture – it was sort of like a black art – until I saw the Silicon Run film. I found the information very usefu and approachable.Theresa Buckholz

The best, if not the only, overview of back-end processing I have come across. We schedule our fundamental circuit course around calculations of interconnect delays in computers, so your films is very useful.Michael Reed

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.
