The course introduces the concepts and physical procedures involved in the design, integration and manufacture of semiconductor devices and circuits. The course teaches fundamental design principles and simulations of hands-on experience in fabricating integrated circuits based on silicon technology but extendable to other materials. By the end of the course, the students should understand the broad aspects of semiconductor processing for integrated circuits and various junction devices, including testing and evaluation, concepts of yield, lab procedures including safety, assembly and packaging.
By the end of the course students should be able to:
- Be conversant with the terminology and theory involved in the design and fabrication of semiconductor devices.
- Know the processes for the design, large scale integration and manufacture of semiconductor devices.
