Introduction to IC Design & Fabrication

To meet the projected worldwide demand for semiconductor devices, the semiconductor industry is demanding technical and nontechnical staff and personnel to be well versed in the key elements of IC fabrication and design. Students will learn how integrated circuits are designed and fabricated. Topics include electronic fundamentals, crystal growth and wafer types, transistor types such as (bipolar, nMOS, pMOS, CMOS, bi-CMOS, Tri-gate transistors), high-k and low-k materials, Metal gates, basic design and layout concepts, mask making, wafer processing, materials used for fabricating the wafer, tools used for processing the wafer, contamination control, clean room standards, test, assembly, packaging and IC types. This course is designed for both non-technical and technical students.

This one-day seminar gives you a comprehensive overview of the semiconductor industry and technology. The course will give you the background you need to understand the basics of semiconductor devices, how they work, the processing technologies and the equipment used to produce them, and circuit design techniques.
