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.
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

An excellent job of capturing the technical challenges associated with the design, manufacturing and assembly of integrated circuits. In addition, they are presented in an artistic manner which makes the process interesting to a wide variety of audiences. These films will be interesting to viewers in our educational programs for college students as well as our technical staff.Ray Yarema

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.
