About Silicon Run Productions

Silicon Run 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 Films

Silicon Run’s nine award winning educational films explore the fascinating process of semiconductor manufacturing from A to Z. Shot on site and illustrated with rich animations, Silicon Run’s films provide in-depth studies of such topics as: MEMS (microelectromechanical systems), Nanotechnology, Lithography, Implantation, Deposition, Etch, front end and back end semiconductor manufacturing (Silicon Run I and II) and Silicon Run LITE (an overview film useful as an intro).

The two films are great. Very useful, about the right level. We have purchased a number of films over the years, but many are too product oriented or too expensive and go out of date quickly. The SILICON RUN films should be relevant for a few years. We show them in third and fourth year electronics courses and to grad students and second year classes when appropriate.Professor J.W.

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

The SILICON RUN I and II films I purchased long ago have been seen in every semester that we have taught IC fabrication. The interest I see in every student that watches it is so satisfying to me. Now that we are officially making CMOS devices, the films relate closely with many steps we are doing.Laureen Rose
