Text: Device Electronics for Integrated Circuits by Richard S. Muller and Theodore I. Kamins. Published by John Wiley and Sons. 3d edition, 2002.
Handouts and class notes will complement the texts.
Course format: There will be homework assignments, a midterm, a presentation and laboratory work. Laboratory work will consist of designing, fabricating and testing of something interesting such as a simple MOS circuit. You will design the entire process sequence, simulate the expected device characteristics and circuit performance, and compare it with your experimental results. Homework, midterm, presentation, and laboratory will each contribute 20%, 20%, 20% and 40% to the final grade. The laboratory will consist of a final report and a presentation to the class.
Office Hours: Office hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:30-4:30 p.m. or by appointment, or just stop by..
Teaching Assistant: The TA is Shouxuan Xie, email@example.com, office hours TBA.
Lab Supervisor: Martin Vandenbroeck, Room 4110, Engineering I, ext. 4142, firstname.lastname@example.org
Homework 2 HW 2 Solutions
Homework 3* HW 3 Solutions
Homework 4** HW 4 Solutions
Homework 5*** HW 5 Solutions
* For problem 2, the bandgap of Al(.2)Ga(.8)As is 1.67 eV. Also in problem 2, the AlGaAs should be n-type and the GaAs p-type.
** Homework 4 due date has been moved to Tuesday, 5/11/2004.
*** For problem 2, the minority carrier lifetime should be 3 microseconds, not 6 ns.
The midterm will be held on Thursday, 5/27/2004 and will be open book / open notes.
L-Edit tutorial - note: L-Edit has been installed on the following machines in the ECI lab: ECIPC015, ECIPC014, ECIPC050. These are the Gateway machines in the second row in the middle isle.
