Copper has 20 orbiting electrons with only one electron in the outermost shell. The fact that the outermost shell with its 29th electron is incomplete subshell can contain 2 electrons and distant from the nucleus reveals that this electron is loosely bound to its parent atom.

Robert Boylestad

The application of an external electric field of the correct polarity can easily draw this loosely bound electron from its atomic structure for conduction. Both intrinsic silicon and germanium have complete outer shells due to the sharing covalent bonding of electrons between atoms. Electrons that are part of erc complete shell structure require increased levels of applied attractive forces to be removed from their parent atom.

That bkylestad, one with the fewest possible number of impurities. An n-type semiconductor material has an excess of electrons for conduction established by doping an intrinsic material with donor atoms having more valence electrons than needed to establish the covalent bonding.

The majority carrier is the electron while the boglestad carrier is the hole. A p-type semiconductor material is formed by doping an intrinsic material with acceptor atoms having an insufficient number of electrons in the valence shell to complete the covalent bonding thereby creating a hole in the covalent structure.

The majority carrier is the hole while the minority carrier is the electron. A donor atom has five electrons in its outermost valence shell while an acceptor atom has only 3 electrons in the valence shell. Majority carriers are those carriers of a material that far exceed the number of any other carriers in the material. Minority carriers are those carriers of a material that are less in number than any other carrier of the material.

Same basic appearance as Fig. For forward bias, the positive potential is applied to the p-type material and the negative potential to the n-type material.

For most applications the silicon diode is the device of choice due to its higher temperature capability. Ge typically has a working limit of about 85 degrees centigrade while Si can be used at temperatures approaching degrees centigrade. Silicon diodes also have a higher current handling capability. Germanium diodes are the better device for some RF small signal applications, where the smaller threshold voltage may prove advantageous.

Usually, however, technology only permits a close replica of the desired characteristics. The most important difference between the characteristics of a diode and a simple switch is that the switch, being mechanical, is capable of conducting current in either direction while the boykestad only allows charge to flow through the element in one direction specifically the direction defined by the arrow of the symbol using conventional current flow.


The transition capacitance is due to the depletion region acting like a dielectric in the reverse- bias region, while the diffusion capacitance is determined by the rate of charge injection into the region just outside the depletion boundaries of a forward-biased device.

Electronic Devices and Circuit Theory, 10th Edition

Both capacitances are present in both the reverse- and forward-bias directions, but the transition capacitance is the dominant effect for reverse-biased diodes and the diffusion capacitance is the dominant effect for forward-biased conditions. As the magnitude of the reverse-bias potential increases, the capacitance drops rapidly from a level of about 5 pF with no bias.

For reverse-bias potentials in excess of 10 V the capacitance levels off at about 1. Using the bottom right graph of Fig. For germanium it is a 6. For the high-efficiency red unit of Fig. Levels of part c are reasonably close but as expected due to level of applied voltage E.

The threshold voltage of 0. Since all the system terminals are at 10 V the required difference of 0. Positive half-cycle of vi: Positive pulse of vi: Negative pulse of vi: However, vo is connected directly through the 2. For the positive region of vi: The right Si diode is reverse-biased. For the negative region of vi: The left Si diode is reverse-biased.

Using the ideal diode Using the ideal diode approximation the vertical shift of part a would be V rather approximation would certainly be appropriate in this case.

Solution is network of Fig. The maximum level of I Rs will in turn determine the maximum permissible level of Vi. Z1 forward-biased at 0. A bipolar transistor utilizes holes and electrons in the injection or charge flow process, while unipolar devices utilize either electrons or holes, but not both, in the charge flow process. The leakage current ICO is the minority carrier current in the collector.

The separation between IB curves is the greatest in this region. Curves are essentially the same with new scales as shown.

Common-emitter input characteristics may be used directly for common-collector calculations. The levels are higher for hfe but note that VCE is higher also. As the reverse-bias potential increases in magnitude the input capacitance Cibo decreases Fig. Network redrawn to determine the Thevenin equivalent: Considerably less for the voltage-divider configuration compared to the other three. The voltage-divider configuration is the least sensitive with the fixed-bias similar levels of sensitivity.

In general, the voltage-divider configuration is the least sensitive with the fixed-bias the most sensitive. For the voltage-divider configuration the opposite occurs with a high sensitivity to In total the voltage-divider configuration is considerably more stable than the fixed-bias configuration.

Using the exact approach: The collector characteristics of a BJT transistor are a plot of output current versus the output voltage for different levels of input current. The drain characteristics of a JFET transistor are a plot of the output current versus input voltage. For the BJT transistor increasing levels of input current result in increasing levels of output current.


For JFETs, increasing magnitudes of input voltage result in lower levels of output current. The spacing between curves for a BJT are sufficiently similar to permit the use of a single beta on an approximate basis to represent the device for the dc and ac analysis. VCsat and VP define the region of nonlinearity for each device.

For a p-channel JFET, all the voltage polarities in the network are reversed as compared to an n-channel device. In addition, the drain current has reversed direction. In the depletion MOSFET the channel is established by the doping process and exists with no gate-to-source voltage applied.

: Robert L. Boylestad: Books

As the gate-to-source voltage increases in magnitude the channel decreases in size until pinch-off occurs. The enhancement MOSFET does not have a channel established by the doping sequence but relies on the gate-to-source voltage to create a channel.

The larger the magnitude of the applied gate-to-source voltage, the larger the available channel. From problem 14 b: Either the JFET is defective or an improper circuit connection was made. Possible short-circuit from D-S. Draw a straight line through the two points located above, as shown below. In fact, all levels of Av boylestda divided by to obtain normalized plot. The resulting curve should be quite close to that plotted above. Use an expected shape for the curve noting that the greatest Circuit operates boyledtad a window detector.

With potentiometer set at top: A line or lines onto which data bits are connected. Open-collector is active-LOW only. Note that the slope of the curves in the forward-biased region is about the same at different levels of diode eedc. Temperature on linear scale 6. High-power diodes have a higher forward voltage drop than low-current devices due to larger IR drops across the bulk and contact resistances of the diode.

The higher voltage drops result in higher power dissipation levels for the diodes, which in turn may require the use of heat sinks to draw the heat away from the body of the structure. R and C in parallel: The heavy doping greatly reduces the width of the depletion region resulting in lower levels of Zener voltage. Consequently, small levels of reverse voltage can result in a significant current levels. It is essentially the reverse saturation leakage boylesfad of the diode, comprised mainly of minority carriers.

Except for low illumination levels 0. The LED generates a light source in response to the application of an electric voltage. The LCD depends on ambient light to utilize the change in either reflectivity or transmissivity caused by the application of an electric voltage. The LCD display has the advantage of using approximately times less power than the LED for the same display, since much of the power in the LED is used to produce the light, while the LCD utilizes ambient light to see the display.

The LCD, however, requires a light source, either internal or external, and the temperature range of the LCD is limited to temperatures above freezing.
