ELET 2153 - Intro to Microelectronics, 3 Credits

Prerequisite(s): ELET 1143 with D or better

Level: Lower

This course will provide an overview of the fabrication and operation of silicon-based integrated circuits including resistors, diodes, transistors and their current-voltage (I-V) characteristics. Laboratory exercises teach the basics of IC fabrication and I-V measurements. Oxidation/diffusion, photolithography (spin/bake/expose/develop), etch, and vapor deposition equipment allow students the opportunity to design, build, and test simple solid-state devices.
