Back in 1996, there were not that many institutions that
provided a fabrication facility to an undergrad. This
lab was on the physical theory, design and fabrication
of devices suitable for integrated circuitry; including
the electrical properties of semiconductors and techniques
(epitaxial growth, oxidation, photolithography diffusion,
ion implantation, metallization, characterization, etc.)
for fabricating integrated circuit devices such as
p-n junction diodes, bipolar transistors and field-effect
The breakdown of the hands-on-experience laboratory work
is as follows:
Bipolar transistor design.
Chemical vapor deposition.
Ion beam processing.
p-n junction electronics.
Device and integrated circuit processing.
This was a very cool and interesting class.
Here is a project that I did for one of my Electrical
Engineering Classes that went more indepth about gate
level design. This project was to design, test and
hand in a working 8-Bit Adder
Device. Check it out!
