Students will be introduced to the complete front-end to back-end semiconductor processes involved in building integrated circuits. The former includes implant and diffusion of dopants, thin-film deposition, photolithography, and metallisation. Back-end processes such as packaging, testing and ESD protection which play critical roles in the design of real chipsets and systems will also be covered. This subject will enable students to appreciate the scale and variability of semiconductor processes which ultimately determine the yield of ICs. Students will also be introduced to activities by the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors organization which ensures advancement in the performance of IC and related products.
Semiconductor processing, device mismatch, packaging and assembly, reliability and yield, electrostatic discharge protection circuitry
