This fully updated introduction to semiconductor manufacturing offers a low-math, straightforward approach to the entire process, from raw materials through shipping the finished, packaged device. Microchip Fabrication: A Practical Guide to Semiconductor Processing, Sixth Edition provides you with a solid working knowledge of the important issues, processes, materials, and methods involved in semiconductor technology, whether on the subatomic level or in the context of large-scale industrial practices. This new edition features completely updated coverage of every stage of the semiconductor process, from raw material preparation to packaging and testing to traditional and state-of-the-art technologies. All technical chapters are self-contained units covering an individual topic, organized in three steps: purpose of the process; basic science or technology; current process technologies used to accomplish the desired outcome.Filled with detailed illustrations and real-world examples, the book is unique in its presentation of the basic and advanced manufacturing processes, using clear and easily understood descriptions. It is the industry's most novice-friendly text, and is used internationally for training, teaching, and vocational-technical programs. New updates reflect the state-of-the-art processes currently being used in the industry: The move to 450mm wafers New lithography processes and chemical formulations required for nanometer resolution An update of the Technology Road Map An update on deposited materials Factory automation
