BJT - Simulation Exercise
out of 5 stars
03 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This simulation exercise teaches the students the operation of BJT transistor, what is current gain and how one extracts current gain from the Gummel plot. It also provides output device characteristics from which students have to extract the Early voltage. Furthermore, it makes the students...
BJT Problems and PADRE Exercise
11 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This set of problems makes the students familiar with h-parameters and they also teach them how to write the input deck for simulation of BJT device to obtain the Gummel plot, the output characteristics and to extract the h-parameters. Also here, students are taught how to treat current contacts...
Bulk Monte Carlo Code Described
01 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska
In this tutorial we give implementation details for the bulk Monte Carlo code for calculating the electron drift velocity, velocity-field characteristics and average carrier energy in bulk GaAs materials. Identical concepts with minor details apply to the development of a bulk Monte Carlo code...
Bulk Monte Carlo Lab:Scattering Rates for Parabolic vs. Non-Parabolic Bands: an Exercise
20 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise helps the students learn the importance of the non-parabolic band approximation for large carrier energies.

Solid-State Theory and Semiconductor Transport Fundamentals
Scaling of CMOS devices into the nanometer regime leads to increased processing cost. In this regard, the field of Computational Electronics is becoming more and more important because device simulation offers unique possibility to test hypothetical devices which have not been fabricated yet and...
07 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck, Stephen M. Goodnick
As semiconductor feature sizes shrink into the nanometer scale regime, device behavior becomes increasingly complicated as new physical phenomena at short dimensions occur, and limitations in material properties are reached. In addition to the problems related to the actual operation of...
