Bias voltage parameter doesn’t work?
Closed | Responses: 1
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 …...
Could you list the values of the material parameters you are using (GaAs, Si….)
I V characteristic ?
Closed | Responses: 0
First of thanking you very much for sharing this wonderful tool on PN junction.
I am using MATLAB for solving the same kind of configuration of PN junction and got the...
pn junction I-V curve
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,...
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...
Two functions in graphs?
So when I’m running the simulations, on all of my graphs, I’m getting two functions. A red one, and a blue one. Which of these two functions is the proper one to use? For instance,...
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...
