EE 312 Semiconductor Devices

Credits

3 cr.

Prerequisite

EE 303.

Course Description

This course is designed to give the student an introduction to the physical basis of semiconductor devices. The goals are to provide the student with (1) a working knowledge of the physics underlying all semiconductor devices; (2) an understanding of the physical principles behind the most common semiconductor devices: the p-n junction diode, field-effect transistor, and bipolar transistor; (3) an understanding of the relationship between the circuit behavior of the devices, which were encountered in earlier courses, and their physical embodiment; and (4) a perspective of the physical and technological limitations of electronic devices.
