EE 130: Integrated-Circuit Devices

Electrical Engineering 130: Integrated-Circuit Devices (Spring 2014, UC Berkeley). Instructor: Professor Sayeef Salahuddin. This course provides the fundamentals of basic semiconductor devices: the pn-junction diode, the bipolar junction transistor, the metal-oxide-semiconductor capacitor, and the field-effect transistor. Topics covered in this course include: an overview of electronic properties of semiconductor, metal-semiconductor contacts, pn junctions, bipolar transistors, and MOS field-effect transistors. This course will discuss properties that are significant to device operation for integrated circuits, and silicon device fabrication technology.
