Fall 2004 EE130 Handout #1 EE130: Integrated Circuit Devices Web Page: http://www-inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/~ee130 News Group: ucb.class.ee130 Professor: Vivek Subramanian [email protected] 571 Cory Hall (510) 643-4535 TAs: Paul Chang, [email protected] Josephine Lee, [email protected] Lectures: 277 Cory Hall Tuesdays & Thursdays, 8:00am-9:30am Discussions: Section 101 - Mondays, 2:00pm-3:00pm 289 Cory Hall (TA: Paul) Section 102 - Tuesdays, 10:00am-11:00am 3111 Etcheverry Hall (TA: Josei) Section 103 - Fridays, 3:00pm-4:00pm 293 Cory Hall (TA: Paul) During the discussion sections, the TA’s will review important concepts covered in the lectures, and will work through sample problems. *** THE DISCUSSION SECTIONS WILL BEGIN ON SEPTEMBER 6th *** Office Hours: Vivek Subramanian: Tu 9:30am-10:30am and Th 1pm-2pm in 571 Cory Hall (My schedule is at http://www.eecs.berkeley.edu/~viveks/schedule.gif. Email me for an appointment if you have an urgent need and are unable to attend office hours) TAs: Paul Chang: Mondays 1pm-2pm and Fridays 2pm-3pm in 382 Cory Josephine Lee: Wednesdays, 1pm-2pm in 382 Cory Class Objectives: In this class, you will learn the fundamentals of semiconductor device physics, including p-n junctions, bipolar junction transistors, and field-effect transistors. By the end of this class, I hope that you will understand the operation of these devices qualitatively and quantitatively. Prerequisites: • EECS 40: Simple pn-junction and MOSFET theory; MOSFET circuit applications; basic microfabrication technology • Basic high-school / college physics and chemistry Fall 2004 EE130 Handout #1 Relation to other courses: EE130 is a prerequisite for the following courses: • EE131: Semiconductor Electronics (may be taken concurrently) • EE231: Solid State Devices EE130 is also helpful (but not required) for IC analysis and design courses such as EE140 and EE141, as well as for the microfabrication technology course EE143 Primary Text: Fundamentals of Semiconductor Devices B. L. Anderson and R. L. Anderson McGraw-Hill Reference Texts: Solid State Electronic Devices B. G. Streetman and S. Banerjee Prentice Hall Semiconductor Device Fundamentals R. F. Pierret Addison Wesley Device Electronics for Integrated Circuits R. S. Muller and T. I. Kamins with Mansun Chan Wiley Deliverables: 1. Homeworks will be assigned approximately every Thursday and will be due the following Thursday in class. Late homeworks will not be accepted. 2. A midterm design project will be due on November 16th. You must work alone on this project, which used to gauge your understanding of the material taught in class. You will be required to use analytical techniques to design a bipolar junction transistor technology. 3. There will be 4 tests (~60 minutes each) that will be given periodically in class throughout the semester as identified on the schedule below. These will consist of simple questions to test the students’ understanding of the material taught. All tests will be open book and notes. In general, you will not be allowed to make up tests that you miss due to absence from class. 4. A final exam will be given on Friday, December 17th, 2004 from 12:30pm-3:30pm. The final exam will involve some quantitative problems, so a calculator is highly recommended. The exam will be open book and notes.
