The concepts of a basic monolithic IC will be discussed here. To know the basics a sample circuit must be considered to be converted to its monolithic form. With basic components like resistor, diode, and transistor a basic circuit is first made. The basic structure of a monolithic IC will have 4 layers of different materials. The base layer will be a P-type silicon layer and is named as the substrate layer. This layer will have a typical thickness of micrometer.

VLSI: Development and Basic Principles of IC Fabrication

The silicon crystal is manufactured as a cylindrical ingot. This cylinder is sawed into discs or wafers. Polishing and crystal orientation takes place later on. Lithography The process of photolithography includes masking with a photographic mask and photo etching.

A photoresist film is applied on the wafer.

A photo aligner aligns the wafer to a mask. Tracks are highlighted by exposing the wafer to ultraviolet light through a mask. Etching It removes material selectively from the surface of wafer to create patterns.

An etching mask protects some parts of the material. Additional chemicals or plasma removes the remaining photoresist. Ion implantation It is a method of adding dopants.

A beam of high energy dopant ions Phosphine or boron trichloride is targeted at specific regions of a wafer. The depth of penetration into the wafer depends on the energy of the beam. Metallization A thin layer of aluminum is deposited over the whole wafer. Aluminium is working as a good conductor and forms low resistance contacts.

It can be applied and patterned with single deposition and etching process. Assembly and Packaging Each of the wafers contains hundreds of chips.

A diamond saw cuts the wafer into single chips separating the single chips. The chips failing electrical tests are discarded, whereas the good ones are sent for packaging. Before packaging, remaining chips are observed under a microscope.
