Homework for PN Junctions: Depletion Approximation (ECE 606)

By Muhammad A. Alam

Purdue University

Published on


This homework assignment is part of ECE 606 "Solid State Devices" (Purdue University). It contains 5 problems which lead students through a comparison of the depletion approximation and an exact solution of PN junction diodes. Students compute the exact solution by using the PN Junction Lab available on nanoHUB.
