In this e-learning course, you will learn the definition of “semiconductor” and the basics of semiconductor devices, including diodes, transistors, optical semiconductor devices, and power supply ICs.
Chapter 1 discusses the basics of semiconductors such as the definition of “semiconductor”, materials of semiconductors, n-type and p-type semiconductors, and p-n junctions.
Chapter 2 shows different types of diodes and discusses their operations and characteristics.
Chapter 3 shows different types of transistors and discusses their operations and characteristics.
Chapter 4 discusses different types of power supply ICs, conditions of power supplies in equipment, and why point-of-load (POL) power supplies are required. It also describes the operations of linear and switching regulators.
Chapter 5 discusses different types of optical semiconductor devices including photocouplers and discusses their operations and characteristics.
