This subject introduces students to the fundamental principles of conventional and advanced transistor and nanodevice modelling. This subject discusses different transport mechanisms in micro and nano-metre scale devices. Devices include conventional transistors (NMOS, PMOS), double gate transistors, FinFET and Varactors and other active devices are the building blocks of microelectronic and nanoelectronic. This subject will provide the student with the latest models of these devices operating in the multi-gigahertz and sub-threshold regions. Students will be able to design and analyse simple circuits using these models.
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILO)
The goal of the course is to teach the future designers the principles of operation, design and construction of contemporary semiconductor devices created on the basis of solid state physical effects.
Having completed this subject it is expected that the student be able to:
All Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) are assessed in the final written examination and submitted design project reports.
