PN Junction: IV Characteristic (20 points) Consider a p + n silicon diode at T = 300 K with doping concentrations of N A = 10 18 cm -3 and N D = 10 16 cm -3 . The minority carrier hole diffusion coefficient is D p = 12 cm 2 /s and the minority carrier hole lifetime is τ p = 10 -7 s. The cross-sectional area is A = 10 -4 cm 2 . (a) Calculate the reverse saturation current I S . (b) Calculate the diode current I at a forward bias voltage of V A = 0.5 V. (c) Calculate the excess minority carrier hole concentration at the edge depletion region in the n-type region for V A = 0.3 V and V A = – 2 V.
