Semiconductors are the Brains of Modern Electronics. They are an essential component of electronic devices, enabling advances in communications, computing, healthcare, military systems, transportation, clean energy, and countless other applications. In 2021, the sales of semiconductors reached a record $555.9 billion, up 26.2 percent with sales in China reaching $192.5 billion, according to the Semiconductor Industry Association. A record 1.15 trillion semiconductor units were shipped in the calendar year. The semiconductors is projected to reach $ 726.73 billion by 2027.
It is absolutely crucial for practitioner to stay ahead in the industry, improving, and conduct application of latest processing technique of semiconductors to stay ahead in this competitive market.
Electronics and VLSI Design
Over the past several years, Silicon CMOS technology has become the dominant fabrication process for relatively high performance and cost effective VLSI circuits. The revolutionary nature of these developments is understood by the rapid growth in which the number of transistors integrated on circuit on single chip. Besides CMOS and VLSI related courses, Northern Technische Consulting also offers courses in Analog Design, Digital Design, Circuit Theory and Microelectronics.
Optoelectronics and Photonics
The field of optoelectronics has witnessed a tremendous growth in the last two decades with continuous advances made in the field of LEDs, particularly since the breakthrough in the development of the blue and white LEDs in the early 1990s. With interest in LED research and development growing rapidly, advances were also made in the area of material systems supporting the LED industry, including chip substrate and epitaxial growth, encapsulants, interconnects, package substrates (leadframe, PCB, metal-plated plastics/ceramics and other novel substrates). These developments has spin-off benefits for a host of other optoelectronic devices including emitters, detectors and transceivers incorporating IRLEDs, LEDs, photodiodes, laser diodes and even non-emissive semiconductor devices using III-V systems.
PCB / PCA / Substrate
Printed circuit boards are used in nearly all electronic products. Mobility has resulted in reduction in size for most electronic gadgets, while semiconductor devices are expected to increase in power handling capabilities with electronic vehicles and charging stations gaining momentums. With decreasing size of board features and increasing frequencies, small non-homogeneities like uneven distribution of fiberglass or other filler, thickness variations, and bubbles in the resin matrix, and the associated local variations in the dielectric constant, are gaining importance. Printed circuit assembly (PCB loaded with semiconductor devices) also faces new challenges with size miniaturization, higher frequencies and higher power handling and RoHS requirement.
Sensor Technology and MEMS
Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) or Microsystem Technology (MST) has seen tremendous growth in research and development in the last 20 years. From being an emerging technology spun out of traditional semiconductor device and integrated circuits industry, MEMS products are now seeing an explosion in demand, driven by products such as smart phones, intelligent cars, wearable
technology and the internet of things (IoT). The aim of MEMS related courses is to equip engineers, scientists and technical managers with fundamental knowledge relating to MEMS products. The extended advanced course will equip attendees with the tools and methods for MEMS design and simulation, along with a detailed understanding of advanced MEMS fabrication and packaging
Essential Engineering Skills
There are a couple of Essential Engineering Skills such as Research Methodology, Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA), Design of Experiment (DoE) and Technical Writing that systematically guide the engineers to carry out experiments, analysing the results and outcomes, as well as presenting the findings. All these tools are aimed to equip an organization’s technical workforce with the appropriate tools that enable them to carry out their job effectively.
Solar is the most abundant renewable energy resource in the world. Today’s low cost photovoltaic technology has led to unprecedented growth on a truly global scale to meet global primary energy demand. In photovoltaic technologies, crystalline silicon (c-Si) cells are the most common type and the most mature. C-Si is expected to continue to dominate the photovoltaic market in the near future with the solar panels are the most popular of the renewable energy technologies for home owners. This course will go over some of the technical basics behind solar panels and their uses, as well as the most important concepts of semiconductor physics. Different generation and recombination mechanism and the different types of semiconductor junctions will be discussed. Parameters for characterizing solar cells will also be introduced.
