By focusing on the basics of each processing step and the issues surrounding next-generation devices, you'll learn why certain techniques are preferred over others. Additionally, you'll learn basic but powerful information about the wafer fabrication process.
This skill-building series is divided into three segments:
This course is a must for every manager, engineer, and technician working in the semiconductor industry, using semiconductor components, or supplying tools to the industry. Our instructors work hard to explain how semiconductor wafer processing works without delving heavily into the complex physics and mathematical expressions that normally accompany this discipline.
Our courses are dynamic. We use a combination of instruction by lecture, problem solving, and question/answer sessions to give you the tools you need to excel. From the very first moments of the seminar until the last sentence of the training, the driving instructional factor is application. The course notes offer hundreds of pages of reference material that you can apply during your daily activities. Additionally, the opportunity to work through sample problems under the guidance of an expert instructor allows you to cement the concepts you learn through hands-on implementation.
Our instructors are internationally recognized experts. Our instructors have years of current and relevant experience in their fields. They're focused on answering your questions and teaching you what you need to know.
Jim Fraser received a Bachelor's degree in Physics from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He has many years experience in semiconductor manufacturing, at Nortel Networks and STMicroelectronics. As a Process Engineer, Process Engineering Section Manager, and then Process/Device Engineering Manager, he worked directly and intimately with CMOS and BiCMOS wafer fab processes. He has taught semiconductor manufacturing technology at Algonquin College and at the University of Ottawa in Ottawa, Ontario, and has guest lectured at McGill University. More recently he has provided process analysis services on contract to Chipworks (now TechInsights) in Ottawa.
