Unformatted text preview: ECE 474: Principles of Electronic Devices Prof. Virginia Ayres Electrical & Computer Engineering Michigan State University [email protected] Lecture 26: Chp. 04: Current State-of-Art Transistors Photo-generated carriers Introduction of Diffusion Current OFF in a transistor ON in a transistor Where/where not is V = IR when the transistor is ON? Drift current versus Diffusion current Diffusion current: Concentration changes (gradient) as a source of current Diffusion energy level landscape External E- fields versus built-in E – fields due to Diffusion current Si n p n Si n p n Si n p n OFF I V I V Transistor: a device for binary logic (Chp. 06) ON Saturation regime ON Linear (ohmic) regime Si n p n Key: OFF Si 2 pn junctions = 1.11 eV Si n p n Key: OFF Si 2 pn junctions + depletion region (energy barrier) (Chp. 05) = 1.11 eV ON and Diffusion Current (Chp. 04): V DS = IR Where is the line of charge that creates the potential drop?...
