It is very important to understand the large-scale integrated circuit (VLSI) technology to support the modern society in the underlying. So in conjunction with VLSI Technology Second, the CMOS integrated circuit will be dicussed, in particular, scaling techniques, miniaturization technology (exposure technique, film forming technique, an etching technique, ion-implantation, CMP techniques, etc.), a memory device technology, sensor technology, actuator technology, interconnect technology, passive device technology, packaging technology, and others.
By course of this lecture, the goals is to understand the large-scale integrated circuits that support modern society. In addition, we aim to be able to apply to the actual integrated circuit design.
Large-scale integrated circuit (VLSI) technology, CMOS integrated circuit, scaling technology, miniaturization technology, exposure technology, film formation technology, etching technology, CMP technology, memory device technology, sensor technology, actuator technology, wiring technology, passive device technology, packaging technology, and others
