The third volume of the fundamentals of electrical engineering/electronics deals with semiconductors. covering the design and mode of operation of modern semiconductors, with their application demonstrated in project exercises
As an introduction to the topic, different diodes, such as the semiconductor diode, Zener diode, and LED are considered and the basic concepts are worked out. Content including PN junction, reverse voltage, or conducting state current is demonstrated both theoretically and, where possible, using measurements. The topic of transistors is also explained using bipolar and unipolar transistors. The book also covers power electronics components, such as diac, triac, and thyristor.
The workbook contains:
- Didactic notes
- Worksheets for the student
- Multimedia CD-ROM with graphics
Edition 2010, 208 pages, in colour, in folder.
