Many people involved in the electronics industry need a basic knowledge of semiconductor components in order to understand issues like manufacturing cycle time, semiconductor fab consolidation and failure analysis results. This session is geared towards a non-technical audience and gives a high-level overview of semiconductor devices and how they are made. The lecture begins with a brief overview of how semiconductor devices work. The bulk of the presentation describes the generic manufacturing flow for semiconductor devices with an emphasis on the complexity of the equipment/facilities used and the process time required.
