Unformatted text preview: ECE 3040 - Dr. Ying Zhang Georgia Tech ECE 3040: Microelectronic Circuits Lecture 1 Reading: Pierret 1.1, 1.2, 1.4, 2.1-2.6 ECE 3040 - Dr. Ying Zhang Georgia Tech Atoms to Microelectronic Circuits The goal of this course is to teach the fundamentals of non-linear circuit elements including diodes, and transistors (BJT and FET) , how they are used in circuits and real world applications. The course takes an atoms to circuits approach in which you learn about the fundamentals of electron movement in semiconductor materials and develop this basic knowledge into how we can construct devices from these materials that can control the flow of electrons in useful ways. We then extend this knowledge to how these devices can be used to form circuits that perform useful functions on electrical signals. Atomic Properties physical properties device properties circuit performance ECE 3040 - Dr. Ying Zhang Georgia Tech Course Objectives ECE3040 is the first course in the microelectronics area. It introduces basic concepts in semiconductor materials, devices, and circuits and provides the foundation for subsequent courses in ICs and VLSI design. In doing so, the course provides information and problem-solving techniques needed for future coursework and professional activities. Prerequisites for the following courses:-- ECE3042 Microelectronic Circuits Lab-- ECE3050 Analog Electronics-- ECE3060 VLSI and Advanced Digital Design-- ECE3080 Semiconductor Devices for Computer Engineering and Telecommunication Systems -- ECE4000 Project Engineering and Professional Practice ECE 3040 - Dr. Ying ZhangECE 3040 - Dr....
