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.
Of our 600 films in our library the Silicon Run films are the most popular by far.Ryan Morganegg
These films are really nice. They show in a short time what it takes a long time to tell. We use them in our technology courses and our outreach to high schools, vocational schools and business groups such as Rotary. Student teachers find them useful too.R. Dreucci

I highly recommend that Silicon Run II along with Silicon Run I be used in any introductory curriculum pertaining to the integrated circuit. The films also show the many technical positions open in the industry and emphasize the skills needed to qualify for them. They are great recruiting tools for our department! Bruce Bothwell
