This course focuses on CMOS manufacturing. Topics include CMOS process technology work in progress tracking CMOS calculations process technology long channel and short channel MOSFET isolation technologies back-end processing and packaging. Associated is a lab for on-campus section (01) and a graduate paper/case study for distance learning section (90). The laboratory for this course is the student-run factory. Topics include Lot tracking query processing data collection lot history cycle time turns CPK and statistical process control measuring factory performance factory modeling and scheduling cycle time management cost of ownership defect reduction and yield enhancement reliability process modeling and RIT's advanced CMOS process. Silicon wafers are processed through an entire CMOS process and tested. Students design unit processes and integrate them into a complete process. Students evaluate the process steps with calculations simulations and lot history and test completed devices.
