* ELE 208 (ST)
Integrated Circuits: Practice and Principles
The course teaches operation principles and fabrication of microchips. The course has lab sessions, students will fabricate their own diodes, MOSFET's and integrated circuits in microfabrication lab, test the devices and integrated circuits that they have made. Course covers semiconductor properties, pn junctions, metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFET's), bipolar transistors, optoelectronic devices, digital gates and analog amplifiers, and micro/nanofabrication technologies for integrated circuits , photolithography, etching, evaporation, and other thin film processing. No pre-knowledge on these topics are required.
