CMOS Process Integration for 28nm Logic
The course has been newly updated to include all of the latest developments in FinFet Fabrication.
This one-day course provides a step-by-step explanation of current state-of-the-art silicon fabrication focusing on the details of a 28 nm planar Logic process flow. All aspects of the 28nm fabrication process are discussed in depth and both gate-first and gate-last integration methodologies are presented. Both back-end and Front-end processes are described in detail.
The course highlights the importance of each topic it treats in the context of real world of commercial semiconductor manufacturing and is designed to provide a deeper understanding of silicon processing and the emerging new technologies that are revolutionizing this field.
The final section of the class provides an overview of 22nm FinFet processing and an analysis of the Intel implementation of the FinFet. This portion of the class is profusely illustrated with numerous photographs.
The class notes are technically current, in full color and extensively illustrated with state-of-the-art 2D and 3D graphics. They feature numerous cross-sectional and top-down SEM and TEM photographs of leading edge commercial device structures.
The course is targeted at Designers, R&D, Product, Device, Test and Process engineers, managers and other personnel who desire a deeper understanding 28nm planar Logic and an introduction to 22nm FinFet fabrication.
The course content is presented in a clear, highly visual and easy-to-understand manner. It is taught by a world-class instructor who has over 20 years of hands-on experience in the field of silicon fabrication and who is an award winning public speaker.
