ECE 315 Final Exam Dec. 10, 2007 Name: Student ID: The temperature is 300K with V T = kT/q =26mV, while the semiconductor is silicon with E gap = 1.1eV, and the intrinsic concentration n i = 10 10 cm -3 . np = n i 2 can be used to estimate the minority concentration. The minority diffusion length as: n n n D L τ = , where D n= μ n kT/q is the diffusivity and τ n = τ p =1 μ s is the minority recombination lifetime. Diode equations: W d = x n + x p bi D A si V N N q + = 1 1 2 0 ε ε , N A x p = N D x n , = 2 ln i D A T bi n N N V V ε 0 =8.85 × 10 -14 F/cm, ε si =11.7 is the relative dielectric constant of silicon, ε ox =3.9, q =1.6 × 10 -19 coul is the elemental charge, k the Boltzmann constant, and T the temperature. For a bipolar junction diode, I D = I 0 (exp(V D /V T ) – 1) , with + = D i p p A i n n N n L D N n L D qA I 2 2 0 and V T = k B T/q . The minority injection level at the edge of the depletion region can be approximated by p n = p n0 × exp( V D /V T ), which is valid for both forward and reverse biases. For nMOSFET with the threshold voltage V th , the drain current I D in the linear and saturation regions above threshold ( V GS > V th ) are: (notice that C ox μ ch = k n ) ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 saturation 2 2 linear 2 2 2 ' 2 2 ' 2 th GS Dsat DS OV n th GS ch ox D th GS Dsat DS DS DS th GS n DS DS th GS ch ox D V V V V V k L W V V C L W I V V V V V V V V k L W V V V V C L W I - = = - = - = < - - = - - = μ μ And in the saturation region, the quasi-static small-signal circuit model can be approximated as: For V GS < V th , if V DS > 3V T , ( 29 ( 29 T th GS th D V V V I I / exp - 2245 κ , where I th is the current at V GS =V th in EKV model. V T is the thermal voltage at 26mV at room temperature. The small signal parameters can be approximated as: g m = κ I D /V T , r o = V A /I D and A vo = κ V A /V T .

For a CS amplifier with a R L and C L load and an input resistance of R sig , the time constant can be estimated by R sig (C gs + (1+A v )C gd ) + (R L ||r o ) C L .

    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.
