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
About Silicon Run Productions
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).
I highly recommend that Silicon Run II along with Silicon Run I be used in any introductory curriculum pertaining to the integrated circuit. The films also show the many technical positions open in the industry and emphasize the skills needed to qualify for them. They are great recruiting tools for our department! Bruce Bothwell

I’ve worked the majority of my career working at various semiconductor companies on design and test issues, but I’ve never had the opportunity to observe and understand the detail of fab processing until I watched Silicon Run I. If you haven’t seen it, you’re missing a lot!Guy Perry

We showed SILICON RUN I first as an introduction to the subject – it gives good overview and rapid visual association with the terminology to be used. A copy is available to students at any time during the course, and a second viewing is required before the end.Dennis G. Smith
