Course: Semiconductor Device Manufacturing Overview

Course Objectives

  • Gain a "big picture" understanding of the steps involved in making and packaging an integrated circuit.
  • Learn the jargon associated with the microelectronics manufacturing industry.
  • Learn the key concepts and process parameters of each process step.

Course Description

The intent of this course is to provide an integrated overview of the complete semiconductor manufacturing process. We start with how single-crystal substrates are made and end with a packaged part. The background science needed for the information presented will be provided.

The course begins with an overview of basic materials-related concepts used in microelectronics processing. This is followed by a description of process steps required to make an integrated circuit. Process steps such as photolithography, deposition (chemical vapor and sputtering), oxidation, implant, and etch along with current packaging technology will be covered, followed by a review of a simple process flow to emphasize how each step integrates with the others to create a working device.

Who Should Attend?

This course is intended for engineers, technicians, marketing and sales people, or anyone involved in the microelectronics industry who wants a greater understanding of the microelectronic manufacturing and packaging processes.
