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 are excellent films. We use them both at the main campus and Great Falls in CIS courses and an electronics survey course for non majors.Larry Strizich

I’ve been very pleased with the series. The films bring it all together for the students – they’re locked in.Rex Fisher

Good quality, well-made, informative and interesting. Silicon Run II exposes students to a manufacturing process that they would otherwise not see. Rejean Barriacult
