learning outcome

Modern microelectronic components, packages and devices require different interfaces to connect the periphery electrically, thermally, mechanically, optically and fluidly in order to meet the requirements on power management, data transmission band width, signal frequency etc. These specific functions are covered in the lecture Functionalized Peripherics.

Students are able to identify and differentiate the requirements on the interface between nano structures (semiconductor) and the circuit board technology. They develop the ability to apply this knowledge for the conversion of electronic circuit requirements to the products and processes.

Special skills: basics of material science and engineering sciences, early identification of development trends, new technologies and techniques.

Methodological competences: systematic identification of problems and requirements, application of state of the art knowledge, computer aided design, documentation of results. Systems competences: understanding the correlations between design/material/technology and function/system reliability, development of interdisciplinary thinking

Social competences: communication, ability to work in a team, self-confident presenting, environmental consciousness
