ECE60600 - Solid-State DevicesFall 2017
Days/Time: TTh / TBD
Credit Hours: 3
To provide an understanding of the semiconductor devices that are in general use today and the basic tools necessary to learn about new devices.
A relatively broad, moderate depth coverage of semiconductor devices and related topics; semiconductor fundamentals required in the operational analysis of solid state devices; the devices then treated are the pn junction diode, the bipolar junction transistor, and the metal-oxide-semiconductor capacitor and field effect transistor.
