N-MOSFET Source and drain are n + (providing contacts and source of electrons). Substrate often p-type Positive gate bias can induce an electron sheet in the channel or capacitively induced a forward bias in the source diode! If the drain bias is reverse biased, V DS will not affect I D much Only drain and source can have large current! In ideal cases, the only W or L dependence will be the prefactor.

MOS Transistor The MOS transistor is essentially a MOS- capacitor with two PN junctions placed immediately adjacent to the region controlled by the MOS gate. The device is symmetrical Typically the source is placed at ground potential and the drain is held at a positive potential for a n- channel device or negative potential for a p- channel device If no voltage is applied to the gate the circuit looks like two PN junctions back to back in series. Therefore the voltage will drop these diodes and the current flowing will be essentially zero

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
