ECE 3040B: Homework #4 Due Date: October 10, 2011 Page 1 of 2 G EORGIA I NSTITUTE OF T ECHNOLOGY S CHOOL OF E LECTRICAL AND C OMPUTER E NGINEERING ECE 3040C: Microelectronic Circuits Fall Semester 2011, Homework #4 Homework Due Date: Friday, October 10, 2011 1. Pierret, Problem 6.10 (20 points) 2. PN-Junction: Reverse Bias (15 points) The junction capacitance C j of a one-sided silicon pn junction (i.e. one side of the junction is highly doped, the other side is much lower doped, e.g. n + p or p + n) at T = 300 K is measured under a reverse bias V A = – 50 mV and found to be 1.3 pF. The junction area is 10 -5 cm 2 and V bi = 0.95 V. (a) Find the doping concentration of the low-doped side of the junction. (b) Find the doping concentration of the higher doped region. 3.
