PN Junction Theory and Modeling

PN Junction Theory and Modeling

Learn the basics of PN junction theory. Analyze step junctions and linearly-graded junctions both analytically and numerically. See how the depletion region gives rise to a built-in voltage, and also affects the capacitance under AC analysis. Study DC current-voltage characteristics, including both the ideal behavior and corrections for generation/recombination current in non-ideal diodes.... Show More
