pn junction I-V curve
Closed | Responses: 1
For an ideal p-n junction, the Shockley equation applies and the I-V curve should be an exponential curve in forward bias. Why is it always linear in simulation? Though in 2D simulation, would it …
Bias voltage parameter doesn't work?
Closed | Responses: 0
No matter what parameter is entered for the bias voltage, the integrated potential is 0.6 volts. If it's a bug, it's a serious one. If it's a feature ... what am I missing?
Could you list the values of the material parameters you are using (GaAs, Si....)
Useful for very high doping reverse bias conditions?
I want to know how suitable this tool is for calculating IV characteristics for very high doped pn junctions into the 10^(18) - 10^(19) /cm3 under reverse bias conditions. It seems like as you …
PN Junction Lab - 100 Warnings
Open | Responses: 1
I had some trouble running PN Junction Lab; it gave more than 100 warnings for some simulation cases and then stopped. I think I figured it out: using exactly 1 or 2 V as applied voltage does not …
