ECE 55700 - Integrated Circuit/MEMS Fabrication LaboratoryLecture Hours: 1 Lab Hours: 5 Credits: 3
CMPE Special Content Elective
EE Elective - Adv Level Lab
Normally Offered: Each Fall, Spring
Laboratory exercises in the fabrication and testing of silicon integrated circuits and MEMS devices. Two test chips are fabricated and tested, i.e. (i) diode test chip, and (ii) MOSFET test chip OR a MEMS switch test chip. Laboratory technique, the technology of integrated circuit and MEMS fabrication, and device characterization are emphasized. Computer simulation is performed with the projects.
