Technology for Silicon Semiconductor IC (Integrated Circuit) chip which is the basis of modern electronic systems, will be covered, focusing on its historical background, structures of modern semiconductor devices, and fabrication processes. Current and future trends of semiconductor IC technology will also be discussed.
(Prerequisite: EE211, EE362)
In this course, we study in depth how the basic semiconductor devices operate. Various semiconductor devices are examined including a pn junction diode, a bipolar junction transistor (BJT), and two-field effect transistors (MOSFET, JFET). This course will also cover non-ideal effects in the real semiconductor devices.
