Microelectronics based on Linear Relationships
Paper i proceeding, 2008
The new outline of our introductory course on microelectronic devices is presented. The new course has its focus on the MOSFET and aims at providing students with a genuine understanding of the physics behind the current limiting mechanisms. Identification of the assumptions upon which a device model is based is of central interest in the course as is the conclusion that different assumptions result in different models. Validation of models by measurements is also of great importance as is extraction of model parameters. Sometimes student tend to forget that models are just… models.
