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).

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

Both technical managers and manufacturing managers loved Silicon Run Lite. I’ve been looking for a film like this for a long time.Joe De La Cruz

I have found films like Silicon Run’s very valuable to physics students. Physics students spend most of their time in classrooms so their exposure to physics is entirely theoretical. They know these theoretical principles play an important role in modern technology; however, they have little idea how physics is implemented at the product level. Invariably, they find the fabrication of the computer chip very fascinating.Peter Y. Yu
