Understanding Semiconductor Devices is a main text for the advanced or graduate level course taught in virtually all departments of electrical engineering. The strength of the book is its integration of CAD tools which provide direct links to 'real life' issues such as reliability. An amalgamation of theoretical principles means underlying scientific concepts are qdiscoveredq as needed, not just introduced as inventory knowledge. Dimitrijev makes extensive use of diagrams and the text is complete with examples and effective exercises.Key Features:* Comprehensive depth: explanations/introduction of device concepts that enable an easy understanding of the internal mechanisms of device operation* Uses a motivating 'electronics-to-physics' approach, providing appropriate context and a continuous progression from the common-sense towards more abstract concepts* Provides not only coverage of all the important aspects of modern semiconductor devices, but also uniquely links the theoretical principles to real life issues* Contemporary contents, in particular the unique presentation of SPICE models and parametersAncillary material:* Accompanying Microsoft PowerPointAr overheads are available on CD fromwww.oup-usa.org/college* Instructor's manual with transparency masters: 0195139488Contents:PrefaceI.
