Dept. of E. E. NCU. 1. Solid-State Electronics. ◇ Textbook: “Semiconductor Physics and Devices”. By Donald A. Neamen, semiconductors fall under a more general heading called solid-state devices. A solid- state device either the electron tube or transistor, is the integrated circuit.

Two-terminal molecular devices would be self-assembled on a pre-fabricated nanowire crossbar fabric, enabling very high function density at acceptable fabrication costs.

Preliminary estimates show that the density of active devices in CMOL circuits may be as high as cm-2 and that they may provide an unparalleled information processing performance, up to operations per cm2 per second, at manageable power consumption. However, CMOL technology imposes substantial requirements most importantly, that of high defect tolerance on circuit architectures.

In the view of these restrictions, the most straightforward application of CMOL circuits is terabitscale memories, in which powerful bad-bit-exclusion and error-correction techniques may be used to boost the defect tolerance. The implementation of Boolean logic circuits is more problematic, though our preliminary results for reconfigurable, uniform FPGA-like CMOL circuits look very encouraging.

We believe that these application prospects justify a large-scale research and development effort focused on the main challenge of the field, the high-yield self-assembly of molecular devices. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves. This is a preview of subscription content, log in to check access. Preview Unable to display preview.

Diodes optimized to take advantage of this phenomenon is known as photodiodes. Compound semiconductor diodes are also being used to generate light, light-emitting diodes and laser diodes.

Diode Transistor Bipolar junction transistors are formed by two p-n junctions, in either p-n-p or n-p-n configuration. The middle or base, the region between the junctions is typically very narrow. The other regions, and their related terminals, are known as the emitter and collector. A small current injected through the junction between the base and emitter change the properties of the base collector junction so it can be conduct current even though it is reverse biased.

This creates a larger current between the collector and emitter, and controlled by the base-emitter current. Transistor Another type of transistor named as field-effect transistor , it operates on the principle that semiconductor conductivity can increased or decreased by the presence of an electric field. An electric field can increase the number of electrons and holes in a semiconductor, thus changing its conductivity.

Depending upon the type of carrier in the channel, the device may be n-channel for electrons or p-channel for holes MOSFET. Semiconductor Device Materials The silicon Si is most widely used material in semiconductor devices. Its useful temperature range makes it currently the best compromise among the various competing materials. Silicon used in semiconductor device manufacturing is presently fabricated into bowls that are large enough in diameter to allow the manufacture of mm 12 in.

Germanium Ge was a widely used in early semiconductor material, but its thermal sensitivity makes less useful than silicon. Nowadays, germanium is often alloyed with Si silicon for use in very-high-speed SiGe devices; IBM is a main producer of such devices.

Gallium arsenide GaAs is also widely used with high-speed devices, but so far, it has been difficult to form large-diameter bowls of this material, limiting the wafer diameter sizes significantly smaller than silicon wafers thus making mass production of Gallium arsenide GaAs devices significantly more expensive than silicon. List of Common Semiconductor Devices The list of common semiconductor devices mainly includes two terminals, three terminals and four terminal devices.
