ECE 3214 - Semiconductor Device Fundamentals (3C)
Fundamental semiconductor device physics associated with intrinsic and doped semiconductor materials, drift-diffusion of charge carriers, and devices with an in-depth coverage of p-n and Schottky diodes, bipolar junction transistors, and metal-oxide semiconductor and junction field effect transistors.
Why take this course?
This course is designed for 3rd year students for them to be able to understand semiconductor materials and devices. The electrical engineer, computer engineer, materials scientist, or physicist who works in the electronics area must have a basic knowledge of semiconductor devices and materials. It capitalizes on the first semiconductor materials background introduced in ECE 2204 and develops in detail the operation principle and in-depth understanding of p-n junction diodes, metal-oxide semiconductor field effect transistors (MOSFETs) and bipolar junction transistors (BJTs).
