The #1 book in the industry completely revised and updated
A perfect introduction to the industry that drives high tech, Microchip Fabrication offers a low-math, straight-talk approach to the entire process of semiconductor processing from raw materials through shipping the finished, packaged device. With lots of detailed illustrations and analogies to everyday life, this is the industry's most novice-friendly text! Used for training, teaching, and vocational-technical programs, Microchip Fabrication covers every stage of semiconductor processing, from raw material preparation to packaging and testing and traditional and state-of-the-art processes. Each chapter contains quizzes and review summaries buttressed by an extensive glossary.
By the time you've finished Microchip Fabrication, you'll have a solid working knowledge of the important issues and processes and materials and methods involved in semiconductor technology, whether on the subatomic level or in the context of large-scale industrial practices.
" ... An excellent reference for anyone who wishes to know more about the technical side of semiconductor manufacturing. It is well-indexed, and the chapters are self-contained enough to make it useful for catching up on one topic at a time." FabTime, on the previous edition
