Activity 3: Exploring Chip Layers

Lesson 6: Building Skyscrapers on a Wafer

Exploring Chip Layers

Chips may look flat, but they can have as many as 20 layers. Each layer is full of tiny pathways that make up the circuits and transistors of the chip. There are also microscopic connections running between one layer and another.

This activity lets you move between the several layers of a chip by focusing on various depths. Use the Focus Depth control to change the layer visible through the microscope.
