ECE 315 Prelim Exam Solution Fall 2005 Name: ___________________________________ Student net ID: _______________________ For a semiconductor resistor with length of l and cross section of A , the resistance can be estimated as ( 29 p n qp qn A l A l R μ μ ρ + = = , where n and p are the electron and hole concentration, and μ n and μ p are the electron and hole mobility. Diode equations in case: W d = x n + x p bi D A si V N N q + = 1 1 2 0 ε ε , N A x p = N D x n , = 2 ln i D A bi n N N q kT V , ε 0 =8.85 × 10 -14 F/cm, ε si =11.7 is the relative dielectric constant of silicon, q =1.6 × 10 -19 coul is the elemental charge, k B the Boltzmann constant, and T the temperature (default=300K). The thermal voltage k B T/q at room temperature is 26mV. For nMOSFET with the threshold voltage V th , the drain current I D in the linear and saturation regions above threshold ( V GS > V th ) are: ( 29 ( 29 saturation 2 linear 2 2 2 th GS Dsat DS th GS ch ox D th GS Dsat DS DS DS th GS ch ox D V V V V V V C L W I V V V V V V V V C L W I - = - = - = < - - = μ μ And in the saturation region, the quasi-static circuit model can be approximated as: 1. For a semiconductor wire as shown below with a cross section of 2 μ m × 1 μ m and length of 100 μ m contains a p-n junction in the middle with N A =10 16 cm -3 and N D =10 16 cm -3 . Assume n i =10 10 cm -3 and μ n =1,000cm 2 /Vs and μ p =400cm 2 /Vs. Calculate the wire resistance in Ohm. Notice that a real number is required, instead of just formula. Show your derivation and brief justification.

The majority carrier is the main component in drift current (or Ohm’s law resistivity), but we need to substrate out the area that is in the depletion region. m W V mV n N N q kT V i D A bi μ 43 . 0 72 . 0 10 2 10 6 . 1 10 85 . 8 7 . 11 2 72 . 0 12 60 ln 16 19 14 2 = × × × × = = × = = - - Since N A =N D , W is equally distributed on the two sides, which makes the two resistors in parallel have an effective area of 1 μ m by (1 - 0.43/2) μ m.

For a semi-ideal pMOSFET with its source at ground (and hence the gate and drain voltage will be negative), the threshold voltage V th is - 1.0V. (a) Draw the semi-ideal log(| I D |) vs. V GS (range - 2V to 0V) under a small constant V DS (say - 50mV). Identify the operating regions. When the transistor is off, just mark off. When the transistor is on, mark linear and saturation regions. (5 pts) (b) Repeat (a) but with V DS = - 2V on the same plot. Please remember to mark the operating

### What students are saying

• 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.
