EE438 - Homework #2 1. Compute the “built-in voltage” V bi for a pn junction at thermal equilibrium at room temperature for the following doping levels: (a) N A = N D = 10 13 /cm 3 (b) N A = N D = 10 15 /cm 3 (c) N A = N D = 10 17 /cm 3 Note that the intrinsic electron concentration in Si at thermal equilibrium at room temperature is n i = 1.45 x 10 10 /cm 3 (Your textbook erroneously gives a value for n

Plot the diode current, I D , (in mA) versus the diode voltage, V D , (in V) for a pn junction described by the I-V expression I D = I S exp(V D /V T ) where I S = 5 x 10-17 A = 5 x 10-14 mA and V T = 26 mV (thermal voltage at room temperature) Let V D range from 0 to 800 mV....
