Excellent – this film is the best in its class. I recommend it often.Lynn Fuller, Microelectronics Engineering

I’ve spent 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 details of fab processing until I watched SILICON RUN I.Guy Perry, President, Soft Test, Inc.
