6.012 Microelectronic Devices and Circuits Prof. C.G. Sodini Device Characterization Project #1 PN DIODE CHARACTERIZATION Please write your recitation time on your project report. Introduction The goal of the device characterization projects in 6.012 is to expose students to real microelectronics devices: current-voltage characteristics, parameter extraction techniques, and models. These projects use the MIT Microelectronics WebLab, an online microelectronics device characterization test station that Prof. del Alamo and his students have been developing for a while in his lab at MIT. The MIT Microelectronics WebLab is an experimental set up designed to allow the educational use of professional microelectronics characterization equipment by a large number of users through the internet. Access to WebLab is provided through the MIT iLab Service Broker available at http://ilab.mit.edu. Your first step is to register by clicking on the "New user registration" button. Then select admission in the "6.012 students" group. Registration is not automatic but actually must be approved by the system manager. You should therefore register early. Your one-stop shopping location for help, of any kind, regarding this assignment is through the "Report a Bug" tab in the iLab website. A manual for the use of this system can be downloaded from this site after logging in. Engineers working at the cutting edge often use state-of-the-art design and simulation tools in their work. This is worthwhile even if it means dealing with a few bugs, small annoyances, and less than optimal documentation. WebLab 6.0 and the MIT iLab Service Broker are the latest generation in online microelectronic device characterization. In spite of extensive testing, it is possible that a few bugs remain. As engineers working at the state-of-the-art, you should approach this project in a conservative way and carry out your assignment as early as possible. You should also seek help if you find any difficulties. In the device characterization projects of 6.012, you will carry out a fairly detailed DC
