ECE 440 Homework XII Fall 2008 Due: Monday, December 01, 2008 1. Field-effect transistors employ a mechanism different from that of BJT to control the output current by changing the charge density in the active region. The following problem is designed to illustrate the effect of changing charge density on the output current. Assume that a rectangular bar of silicon shown below consists of two layers, each of thickness t 1 and t 2 , respectively. The dimensions are D=100μm, W=4μm, t 2 =5μm and t 1 =100Å. The t 1 layer is uniformly doped with N d1 /cm 3 donors and N d2 =10 14 /cm 3 donors are also uniformly doped in the t 2 layer. A bias of 1 V is applied between x=0 and x=W. Determine the output current, I d , for different carrier densities in the t 1 layer. Specify the current for N d1 =10 17 /cm 3 , 1.1x10 17 /cm 3 , 10 18 /cm 3 , and 1.01x10 18 /cm 3 . Also, estimate the “Amplification Factor” of this device for N d1 =10 17 /cm 3 and N d1 =10 18 /cm 3 . The “Amplification Factor” is defined as AF= I d / N d1 .For simplicity, use an average electron mobility of 1000 cm

### 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.
