The course are taught in English. The subject is offered in the study tracks of Electronic Engineering Master where the technological knowledge of the integration processes is need, the subject is also compulsary in the study plan for Nanotechnologie for ICTs Master. The subject is offered during the first semester of the second year and is focused on the technological aspects of system integration with attention to micro and nano technologies currently available to the designers.
The course is mainly focused on technologies for scalable and heterogeneous integrated functionalities. Future breakthroughs require the study of new devices as well new materials and integration schemes: the knowledge of the relationships between technological processes, device structures and system performance is mandatory for electronic designers. The scaling for planar CMOS technologies during last years can be considered a successful example of the advancement of the technological processes that made possible the definition of 3D devices.In this scenario, the Integrated Systems Technology course will provide the skills enabling the student to understand the relations between physical models at the technological level, and the system level performance. The course will provide a wide range of technological competences, exploited in the practice classes to guarantee a sound quantitative comprehension, and in the simulation laboratories to allow a correct interpretation at the system level of the possible technological solutions.
-Classification of the most relevant CMOS fabrication processes in accordance to ITRS roadmap and their evaluation in terms of figures of merit (Ion, Ioff, intrinsic time....) -Evaluation of consequences due to the scaling techniques used in integration processes both on the single devices and on the inteconnects among structures. -Knowledge of the main fabrication technologies for nanometer scale devices: advanced gate and channel technologies. -Knowledge of adavanced CMOS processes as SOI, Double gate, FinFET, GAA. -Knowlege of the inteconnections and packaging technologies and evaluation of their electrical behavior in term of delays, crosstlak, IR drop. -Ability of using simulation tools for the estimation of the consequences on device and system of the technological parameters. -Knowledge of the emerging technologies that can be considered a possible replacement of CMOS processes.

Good Knowledge of the basic technological processes used in planar technology as photolitography, doping, epitaxy, oxidation and film deposition. Deep knowledge of MOS systems and MOSFET devices: main equations for long and short channel devices with great care to the the conduction in velocity saturation and in subthreshold conditions. Electrical modelling of the intercconects in the integrated circuits.

The practises will be focused on the evaluation of the main system parameters as function of the technological choices adopted during the system integration: in more details by mean of some cases of study will be studied a methodology to evaluate the system behavior from the device and inteconnects parameters both for CMOS processes and for 'emerging' technologies. Some laboratories based on MASTAR simulator will be assigned: starting from a standard process the student will modify its technological parameters to satisfy system level constraints. During the second part of the semester a mandatory project is assigned. The project will be developed by groups of students with the main aim of developimg a tool for the system level prediction.
