VACT 2294 Semiconductor Processing (4 cr)

Prereq: VACT 2297 or NANO 2297 or concurrent enrollment

Semiconductor processing refers to categories of manufacturing processes associated with fabricating an integrated circuit, a type of electrical component manufactured by the semiconductor industry. This course provides an overview explaining these special processes and how they are sequenced to produce the integrated circuit. Vacuum systems technology plays a critical role in making several of the underlying fabrication processes possible.
