This eBook is for people with technical interest for the basics of the structure of microchips.
- Crystal Growth
What is a semiconductor? Why it is so interesting for the electronic? How to use the semiconductor and how is it produced?
- Process steps
Overview of the basic process steps needed to build a microchip like photolithography, oxidation, deposition, etching, doping ...
A short discussion of a CMOS circuit as an example used at the process followed at the next chapter.
Diode --> Transistor --> Inverter
Starting with the silicon wafer a inverter is realized.
A really short look at the packaging to bridge the wafer to the final microchip.
