Introduction of Four Departments

  • Semiconductor Device Department:

The Semiconductor Device Department provides the study of fundamental device physics, the research in advanced device technologies, and the learning of practical novel device design and characterization. This Department intends to cultivate semiconductor device talents for research and development in the academia and the industry in forward looking semiconductor technologies, such as 3D FinFET and GAA CMOS devices; SRAM, DRAM, Flash and the emerging RRAM, MRAM, FeRAM, PCRAM memories; pure Si as well as GaN and SiC compound power devices; MEMS device and system; Sensor and Optical devices. The device TCAD simulation, characterization, and reliability study are embraced for more comprehensive study and characteristic evaluation. In addition, experimental courses in device design and manufacturing employ collaboration with world-class semiconductor companies to provide an up-to-date technology platform for hands-on learning of advanced devices and the exploration of leading-edge technology.

  • Semiconductor Design Department:

Design Technology Institute promotes advanced researches in electronic circuit architecture and system that span the spectrum of analog/mixed-signal, RF and microwave, bio-medical, sensor, memory, digital system, and EDA. Faculties in the institute have demonstrated leadership in various domains including computing in memory, deep learning accelerator and system, hardware security, and quantum algorithm. Novel applications are also developed in close collaboration with leading industry experts. Exemplar systems includes highly-efficient DNN accelerator, bio-mimic fly drone, world-leading ReRAM-based computation engine, and dexterous human-like robotic ARM. Aspiring students are welcomed to join the institute for the highly active and dynamic research environment.

  • Semiconductor Material Department:

To overcome the limitation of Moore’s law, the development of novel semiconductor materials is essential. New functions of semiconductor devices rely heavily on the ultimate utilization of various materials’ characteristics. The National Tsing Hua University has been recognized as one of the strongest institutes on materials research in the world. Our CoSR strongly links material experts on campus and from the semiconductor industry to provide students a solid background through courses and researches on semiconductor materials, including fundamental material cores, Si-based materials, compound semiconductors, dielectrics, metal contacts, polymers, microstructure and failure analysis, as well as computational materials. Through CoSR’s training, students will be cultivated to be multi-disciplinary materials leaders.

  • Semiconductor Process Department:

Semiconductor Manufacturing Process is a major area in which Taiwan excels over the rest of the world. A thorough understanding of the manufacturing process and the ability to harness the process and metrology equipment to its ultimate limit are extremely important. This CoSR plans to equip the students in process with the above capabilities in exploiting resolution enhancement techniques in immersion and EUV lithography, plasma and reactive ion etch, CVD, PVD, ALD, electroplating, CMP, ion implantation, diffusion, and oxidation, and deep learning using big-data coupled with tools such as design of experiment. Ability to solve problems and to invent new process or equipment are imbedded. Rich internship programs with the collaboration companies are highly encouraged to participate for the students of the Process Department.
