∗ Diskette containing a two–dimensional process and device simulator on which the many simulation exercises mentioned in the text can be performed thereby facilitating learning through experimentation
∗ Computer aided education software (accessible via ftp), featuring question and answer games, which enables students to enhance their understanding of the physics involved and allows lecturers to set assignments
∗ Broad coverage spanning the common devices: pn junctions, metal semiconductor junctions, photocells, lasers, bipolar transistors and MOS transistors
∗ Discussion of fundamental concepts and technological principles offering the student a valuable grounding in semiconductor physics
∗ Examination of the implications of recent research on small dimensions, reliability problems and breakdown mechanisms
Educational version of MicroTec(TM) two–dimensional process and device simulation software included. This fast simulator performs a finite difference analysis through the structure and features built–in plotting routines. (Runs on PCs under Windows).
