ECE 440 Homework XIII Spring 2006 Due: Wednesday, April 05, 2006 1. Sketch the energy band diagram for an n-p-n transistor in equilibrium (all terminals grounded) and also under normal active bias (emitter junction forward biased, collector junction reverse biased). With the emitter terminal grounded, determine the signs (positive or negative) of the collector voltage V CE and base voltage V BE , relative to the emitter, that correspond to normal bias. 2. A symmetrical p + -n-p + Si bipolar transistor has the following properties: Emitter/Collector Base A = 10 -4 cm 2 N a = 10 18 /cm 3 N d = 10 16 /cm 3 W b =1 μm τ n = 0.1 μs τ p = 10 μs μ p = 100 cm 2 /V-s μ n = 1060 cm 2 /V-s μ n = 350 cm 2 /V-s μ p = 380 cm 2 /V-s (a) Determine if the straight-line approximation can be applied to evaluate the excess carriers in the base region. (b) With V EB = 0.5 V and V CB = - 3 V, calculate the base current I

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
