Cameron Kirby November 9, 2006 EE 111 section 4 Exp. 4, Semiconductor Components Objective: We should become familiar with electronic semiconductor components including diodes, light emitting diodes (LEDs), bipolar junction transistors (BJTs), triacs, and digital integrated circuits (ICs). An understanding of the performance characteristics of these devices will be established in this experiment, which will then be followed by applications of the components in electronic circuits. Procedure: Section 1, part a: Zener diodes. Set the Agilent E3640A DC Power Supply to 5V with a current limit of 0.5A. Measure the voltage across the Zener diode ( VR1 ). To find the current I Z flowing through the zener diode, divide the voltage across R1 ( V DC - V Z ) by the resistance value for R1 as per equation (1) below. Increment the supply voltage in 1V increments until 18V is reached. Record the zener voltages V Z and currents I Z in a table. Note that the zener voltage may require some time to stabilize due to heating. Change
