Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA EECE 480 MICROELECTRONIC DEVICES MID-TERM EXAM, October 26, 2006 Time: 1.25 hours Full marks can be obtained by answering Questions 1, 2 and 3 correctly. No notes, programmable calculators or books allowed. This exam consists of 2 pages. Some equations are given on a separate page. Information: For Si: n i =10 10 cm - 3 and E g =1 . 12 eV. For this exam, take: kT/q =25mVandln( X )=2log 10 ( X ). 1. (a) [3 marks] In this question, it is permissible to assume that E Fi for Si lies at an energy level that is midway between E C and E V . Explain, without doing a numerical evaluation, why this is an acceptable assumption. (b) [8 marks] Carefully construct an energy band diagram, in the x- direction (gate to body), of an N- MOSFET with a heavily doped p - type polySi gate, under equilibrium conditions. Show E 0 , E l , E C , E V , E F , and, in the body and the gate, E Fi . (c) [3 marks]
