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).

These films are very well done. We use them in introductory courses, and my wife also uses them in her high school classes to attract students to careers in science and engineering.Wayne Anderson

One of the best technical films I have ever seen. Both films are very useful to us.Jim Bearman

The best, if not the only, overview of back-end processing I have come across. We schedule our fundamental circuit course around calculations of interconnect delays in computers, so your films is very useful.Michael Reed
