About the book
In less than 50 years, transistors have undergone a significant reduction in their sizes. Forty years ago in the 1970s, the size of a transistor was slightly smaller than 10 micron; today, the size of which has shrunk to less than 10 nanometers. This is to say that, more than a billion transistors can be incorporated into a single chip nowadays. This allows an integrated circuits chip to support an unprecedented dynamic number of features. This book intends to give an extensive coverage on topics related to integrated circuits chips. It welcomes topics as (but not limited to): The Physics of a Transistor, The Material Science of a Semiconductor, The Operational Concept of a Chip, The Design Process of a Chip, The Fabrication Process of a Chip, Various IC Packaging Technology, and The Latest Technological Advancements in the Development of a Chip.
