about

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

The Silicon Run film series has become a standard of instruction at Level One Communications for several years now. Because we are a ‘fabless’ semiconductor design and test facility, the Silicon Run series has supplemented our staff with the wafer fabrication and assembly technology many typically don’t get a chance to observe. Thanks for the behind the scenes view of this marvelous semiconductor industry.Dan Hamilton

Excellent film! We use it in our undergraduate semiconductor device course, and also show it to lab visitors who do not have semiconductor backgrounds.Ben Streetman

I’ve been very pleased with the series. The films bring it all together for the students – they’re locked in.Rex Fisher

Our Next Film

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.
