ECE 440 Homework VIII Fall 2008 Due: Monday, October 27, 2008 1. An abrupt Si p-n junction has the following properties at 300 K: p-side n-side A = 10 -3 cm 2 N a = 3x10 17 /cm 3 N d = 6x10 15 /cm 3 τ n = 0.1 μs τ p = 10 μs μ p = 180 cm 2 /V-s μ n = 1160 cm 2 /V-s μ n = 540 cm 2 /V-s μ p = 420 cm 2 /V-s (a) Draw the band diagram qualitatively under forward and reverse bias showing the quasi- Fermi levels. (b) Calculate the reverse saturation current due to holes, due to electrons and the total reverse saturation current. The equation for reverse saturation current is equation (5-37b). (1) + = p n n n p p n L D p L D qA I 0 For the reverse saturation current due to holes we need the following quantities (2) s cm u q kT D p p / 87 . 10 420 0259 . 2 = = = (3) cm D L p p p 0104 . = = τ
