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...
Two functions in graphs?
Closed | Responses: 1
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,...
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,...
Bias voltage parameter doesn’t work?
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….)
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...
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...
