|bachelor academic studies
|Lecturer (for classes)
|Lecturer/Associate (for practice)
|Lecturer/Associate (for OTC)
|Introduction to mathematical - physical modelling of practical semiconductor device. Model analysis and simulation explain the influence of relevant parameters for device functioning and lead students to the optimal design of devices.
|Student is capable of understanding the influence of various device parameters on real semiconductor devices or circuits and to select the appropriate model level. Student is able to apply SPICE in device or circuit synthesis.
