Semiconductor technology

Semiconductor technology uses semiconducting materials like silicon to create electronic devices with properties between conductors and insulators. Integrated circuits (ICs) are the core of semiconductor tech, consisting of tiny interconnected components on a single piece of silicon. ICs are used in many devices, and their creation involves designing circuits, depositing material, patterning layers, and etching unwanted material. The field is advancing quickly, enabling powerful devices while reducing their size and cost.
