EE331: Devices and Circuits I Introduction to EE 331 DL Course Overview Welcome to EE331! The first stop in your journey to learn the art of electronics! We will be covering a large volume of material during this quarter. Hopefully, this course will be both informative and fun. There are four main topics covered in the course: 1. Physics of conduction in semiconductors 2. Solid-state diodes and their use in non-linear circuits 3. Physics and applications of Field Effect Transistors (FET) 4. Logic circuit design Objectives: We will begin with a study of the phenomenon of conduction in semiconductors. This provides the basis for understanding the principles of operation for two very important classes of electronic components: diodes and FETs. After a comprehensive study of these components, we will use them to design and build logic gates and more complicated circuits. By the end of this quarter you will be able to: 1. Calculate conduction properties of materials and simple device structures 2. Explain the operating principles of semiconductor diodes and FETs 3. Determine the in-circuit operating state of diodes and FETs 4. Perform large signal analysis of circuits containing semiconductor diodes and FETs 5. Use a modern schematic capture and computer-aided circuit analysis program (SPICE) 6. Calculate the performance parameters for different MOS logic families Class Information: Instructor: Tai-Chang Chen tcchen[at] Office Hours: Teaching Assistants: Webpage: Website:
