Les infos clés
PLEASE NOTE: This version of the course has been formed from an earlier version, which was actively run by the instructor and his teaching assistants. Some of what is mentioned in the video lectures and the accompanying material regarding logistics, book availability and method of grading may no longer be relevant to the present version. Neither the instructor nor the original teaching assistants are running this version of the course. There will be no certificate offered for this course. Learn how MOS transistors work, and how to model them. The understanding provided in this course is essential not only for device modelers, but also for designers of high-performance circuits.
- Week 1 - About This Course and Overview of the MOS Transistor
Welcome to the “MOS Transistors” course! We are very excited to be able to offer this course, and are looking forward to working with you.
- Week 1 - Preliminaries and Background
- Week 2 - The Two-Terminal and Three-Terminal MOS Structures
- Week 3 - The Long-Channel MOS Transistor – Part 1
This is the first module we are dealing with the complete transistor; much of this material, as well as next module's material, will form the core of what we will be covering in the rest of the course. We hope you will spend extra time studying to make sure yo...
- Week 4 - The Long-Channel MOS Transistor – Part 2
This material concludes the lectures on the long-channel transistor in DC operation. As mentioned earlier, these lectures will form the core on which many of our subsequent discussions will be based.
- Week 5 - Small-Dimension Effects 1
In this module we are dealing with phenomena that occur when the transistor dimensions are made small; this is important knowledge to have when one is dealing with modern devices.
- Week 6 - Small-Dimension Effects 2; Modeling for Circuits Simulation
This module we will finish with small dimension effects, and then talk about models for circuit simulation (the circuit designers among you are probably already using such models). We discuss what it takes to make a good model for circuit simulation (among oth...
- Week 7 - Large-Signal Dynamic Operation
In this module there is a significant departure from what we have done up to this point: we will allow the terminal voltages of the transistor to vary with time. We will determine the resulting terminal currents, which will now include a “charging” component. ...
- Week 8 - Small-Signal Modeling I
The material for this module deals with small-signal modeling, and constitutes an important part of the description of MOS transistor behavior. It relates small changes in terminal voltages to the resulting small changes in currents. Small-signal modeling is k...
- Week 9 - Small-Signal Modeling II
This material concludes our discussion of small-signal modeling; it shows how we can model the transistor at frequencies at which the simple model we derived last week is not valid. Such modeling is important in high-frequency applications, e.g. transceiver de...
- Week 10 - Final Exam
The exam is open book, open notes, open videos. It covers the material of the first nine weeks of videos in the course. You are NOT allowed to discuss the exam, directly or indirectly, with anyone. Anybody found in violation of this rule will be removed from t...
- Week 11 - End of Course
Although your knowledge of this material will not be tested in the final exam, we urge you to go through it, as it deals with important topics, namely noise, ion implantation and substrate nonuniformity, and statistical variability; these topics will help comp...
