Online Textbook Explains Semiconductor Principles

Want to know how a MOSFET works? The online textbook, Principles of Semiconductor Devices, covers that and more:

  • Review of Modern Physics
  • Semiconductor Fundamentals
  • Metal-Semiconductor Junctions
  • p-n Junctions
  • Bipolar Transistors
  • MOS Capacitors
  • MOS Field-Effect-Transistors

One interesting feature of the book is that it includes several short videos that visually illustrate various principles. That’s kind of cool.


  1. Thanks again for the links to nice resources such as this on-line text. Animations are always a plus in building a better understanding of how those “little critters” work. ;)
