learning outcome

After the lectures and exercises the students are familiar with modern microelectronic components. They know, that 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. They know these specific functions, which 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 have developed the ability to apply this knowledge for the conversion of electronic circuit requirements to the products and processes.

Special skills: Students know thebasics of material science and engineering sciences. They are able to identify development trends, new technologies and techniques early.

Methodological competences: Students can systematically identify problems and requirements. They can applicate state of the art knowledge, are familiar with computer aided design and documentation of results.

Systems competences: Students understand the correlations between design/material/technology and function/system reliability. They have the ability to interdisciplinary thinking

Social competences: Students are able to active communication, have the ability to work in a team and can self-confidently present results. They have developed environmental consciousness.
