Learning Outcomes

Participants of this course know the basic concepts of solid-state physics. They know the construction and processing of semiconducor devices as well as the function and modelling of bipolar and unipolar devices in signal processing. They understand the concept of device reliability and recognize the concept of modern and future devices.

Content

The fundamental device physics including some explanation of the underlying physical concepts is given. This includes a brief overview of modern technological processing and the physics based modeling. The fundamental physical phenomena are reviewed and more fundamental concepts discussed. Based on that bipolar devices, metal semiconductor junction but mostly MOS transistors including short channel effects are presented. The lecture concludes with an introduction to reliability and failure analysis of semiconductor devices.
