Silicon Run: Etch takes a close look at the etching process in semiconductor manufacturing. The video show how nonconductive, semiconductive and conductive materials are sculptured into the microchips used in modern electronics. Following the fabrication of a CMOS transistor, the process conditions required for dielectric etch, silicon etch, and metal etch are explored.

Topics Include:

  • CMOS Overview
  • Wet Etch
  • Dry Etch
  • Planarization (CMP)
  • Selectivity
  • Plasma
  • Plasma Variables
  • Vacuum
  • Chemical Reactions
  • Physical Reactions
  • Sidewall Deposition
  • Inspection
  • End Point Detection
  • Wafer Thinning

Winner of the 2000 San Jose/Silicon Valley Joey Award, and the sixth video in the Silicon Run series, this film is perfect for both academic settings and corporate training purposes.
