...Semiconductor Devices and circuits. Materials are divided into three basic groups ly conductors, Insulators and semiconductors. The difference is centered on their electrical conductivity with conductor material having highest conductivity and insulators the lowest. Semiconductors materials fall between the conductors and insulators and their conductivity affected by factors like light, temperatures, impurities and magnetic field. Covalent bond results when two atoms from different materials share their outermost electrons to achieve a stable balance. Each atom after sharing electrons will attain a full outer shell.

The existence of this voltage can be utilized to bias a diode without connecting it to a circuit. If the positive side of the ohmmeter is connected to the P-material and the negative side to the N-material the diode will be forward biased and due to this the voltmeter will at an appropriate scale will indicate some resistance. When the two ohmmeter leads are reversed the diode will be reverse biased and this indicates whether a diode is good or bad.

...Semiconductor, first articulated what would later be identified as his law in a 1965 paper for Electronics magazine’s 35th anniversary. In his original 1965 paper, Moore asserted that the number of components that could be placed on a chip could be expected to double every year. Just 10 years down the line, i.e. in 1975, Moore revised his prediction, stating that “the new slope might approximate a doubling every two years, rather than every year.” to 24 months1. The law started as just as an article in a journal has not only become a guiding principle... Moores Law Gordon E. Moore, the co-founder of Intel made a prophetic prediction in 1965. Moore, a physical chemist who also co-founded Fairchild...

...semiconductor material as it is heated, so that impurity atoms can diffuse in to the crystal lattice of the semiconductor. Thus, a region of N or P type semiconductor can be diffused into a block of pure intrinsic semiconductor, or (if the concentration is large enough) can... ? THE FABRICATION OF BIPOLAR JUNCTION TRANSISTORS BY DIFFUSION PLANAR PROCESS INTRODUCTION The fabrication of Bipolar Junction Transistors (B.J.T by the Diffused Planar Process is the objective of this report. The diffused planar process is self-explanatory in itself by the name. “The diffusion method for manufacturing junction transistors, pioneered by C. A. Lee at Bell Labs, uses a vapour of the impurity atoms surrounding the...
