MICROCHIP FABRICATION, A Practical Guide to Semiconductor Processing, 5th Edition New to this Edition:
  • Nanotechnology
  • 300-mm Wafer Processing
  • Green Processes and Devices
  • New Fabrication Advances

The # 1 book in the industry -- completely revised and updated

An optimum 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.
