* ELE 208 (ST)
Integrated Circuits: Practice and Principles
This course examines what is inside a microchip, how it works, and how it is made. Topics include semiconductor material structures and properties, pn junction, solar cells, metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) field-effect transistors (MOSFET's), bipolar transistors, and their circuit applications such as digital gates and analog amplifiers, as well as microfabrication technology for semiconductor devices and integrated circuits, such as photolithography, etching, evaporation, and other thin film processing. The course has a hands-on integrated circuit microfabrication lab to fabricate diodes, MOSFET's and circuits by students themselves.
