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.
This film will be shown to our third term in digital. It nicely ties together the concepts in Silicon Run I with materials studied in the first two digital courses.Cal Hicks

Excellent films – we enjoyed them. They give a great live illustration of what students are trying to read in a book. I use them in our solid state courses They’re also used in a CIS program to give an appreciation of what’s really happening with electronics circuitry.James G. Smith

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
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.
Workshop with Educators
Our first research activity was a workshop in November 2015 at Stanford, which was attended by ten undergraduate science professors from »read more
