In Chapter 1: have chosen to discuss only two semiconductor devices, the junction diode and the fully-depleted silicon-on-insulator field effect transistor. The SOI-FET is the easiest of the FETs to understand, both physically and mathematically. It may become the mainstream FET technology in the near future. By limiting the discussion to this one transistor type I intend to provide a useful introduction to active devices that includes the most essential device physics.
Chapter 2: introduces the basic processes of semiconductor device fabrication and describes the process flow of an SOI CMOS process. This chapter also introduces the basic concepts of layout and relates device cross sections to the layout. Chapters 3-8 concern linear circuit theory and applications. Linear circuit theory remains an essential part of the ECE vocabulary- ECEs are apt to use circuits in the solution of all sorts of problems, in electromagnetic, mechanical, fluid, thermal, etc. domains.
Chapter 3: is a summary of linear circuit analysis concepts, including the analysis of circuits with dependent sources.
Chapter 4: concerns (low frequency) op amp circuit analysis, providing a both a link to real circuit applications and also a good example of the application of dependent sources to model practical circuits.
Chapter 5 introduces energy storage elements and the transient analysis of first-order systems.
Chapter 6 uses the switching power converter as an example of a system that requires transient analysis, providing another link to engineering practice.
Chapter 7: addresses transient analysis in second-order systems, and sinusoidal steady state analysis is presented in
Chapter 8. By placing sinusoidal steady state after the discussion of transient analysis, it is possible to view sinusoidal steady state analysis as a way to efficiently determine the forced response of a system for the special case of sinusoidal excitation. Finally,
Chapter 9: introduces the (exponential) Fourier series and the Fourier transform and followed by the concepts of modulation and demodulation of analog signals.
