This course provides a solid foundation in the physical aspects of semiconductor models so that students will be able to not only understand current devices and exploit them in novel applications, but also appreciate the workings of new semiconductor devices as they materialize and evolve in future years. The material is presented rigorously. The course covers Semiconductor Diode and Bipolar Junction Transistor and its applications.

The main object is to understand the application of the semiconducting materials; and to gain more information about techniques of their preparations and measurements and interpretation of the results.

    Learning outcomes
    • Explain and apply the semiconductor concepts of drift, diffusion, donors and acceptors, majority and minority carriers, excess carriers, low level injection, minority carrier lifetime, quasi-neutrality, and quasi-statics;
    • Explain the underlying physics and principles of operation of p-n junction diodes, bipolar junction transistors (BJTs), and describe and apply simple large signal circuit models for these devices which include charge storage elements;
    • Explain how devices and integrated circuits are fabricated and describe discuss modern trends in the microelectronics industry;
    • Explain, compare, and contrast the input, output, and gain characteristics of single-transistor
    • Determine the frequency range of simple electronic circuits and understand the high frequency limitations of BJTs
    • Understand the limitations of the various device models, identify the appropriate model for a given problem or situation, and justify the selection; and
    • Design simple devices and circuits to meet stated operating specifications.
