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).

Great film! Quality work, and highly valued in my library. Several other professors use it as well.Stan Garren

Good, quick overviews of the technology. They serve for both those who need only a general knowledge of the technology and those who need a birdseye view of the whole process in order to study it in further detail.Marek Sosnowski

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
