Unique in approach, this book provides an integrated view of silicon technologywith an emphasis on modern computer simulation. It describes not only the manufacturing practice associated with the technologies used in silicon chip fabrication, but also the underlying scientific basis for those technologies. FEATURES/BENEFITS Extensive use of modern computer simulation methods and examplesIntegrated into each chapter. Illustrates how technologies work. Allowing the reader to develop a better physical understanding of concepts and helps them in visualizing features of the technologies that are not easily seen any other way. Early, broad exposure to a complete chip manufacturing process (Ch. 2). Ties many diverse processing concepts together and establishes the context for the specific technologies discussed in later chapters. Examples of modern manufacturing practice. Providing readers with practical examples of fundamental concepts. Historical perspective and introduction. An integrated view of silicon technologywith an emphasis on modern computer simulation. Extensive use of modern computer simulation methods and examplesintegrated into each chapter. Early, broad exposure to a complete chip manufacturing process. Examples of modern manufacturing practice.Plummer, James D. is the author of 'Silicon Vlsi Technology Fundamentals, Practice and Modeling', published 2000 under ISBN 9780130850379 and ISBN 0130850373.
