This book is an introduction to the physical principles of modern semiconductor devices and their advanced fabrication technology it begins with a brief historical review of major devices and key technologies and is then divided into three sections: semiconductor material properties, physics of. Semiconductor devices in most pure semiconductors at room temperature, the population of thermally excited charge carriers is very small often the concentration of charge carriers may be orders of magnitude lower than for a metallic conductor. Semiconductor devices are manufactured both as single discrete devices and as integrated circuits (ics), which consist of a number—from a few (as low as two) to billions—of devices manufactured and interconnected on a single semiconductor substrate, or wafer. On semiconductor offers a comprehensive portfolio of innovative energy efficient power and signal management, logic, discrete, and custom semiconductor solutions.
