5-0 out of 5 stars A gem about FUNDAMENTALS
This textbook is excellent, it is the basic, number one point of starting the journey into the device world. Clear, concise, written as it shuold be done.

To someone this book will seem to be very simple, not enough details coverd and not many devices like SET or SOI.

To other people this textbook will seem to be extremely difficult, impossible to read, confusing, full of theories that cannot be understood. Somebody even wrote here that you will need a PhD in order to read and learn from this book.

Well, if a PhD is needed for reading this book then we humans probably are less intelligent than a cockroach and the term SEMICONDUCTORS would be used maybe for unknown powerful GODS with unimaginable powers that to us, humans, would never be revealed.(and don't even think to ever understand MOSFETs or BJTs, since they are strange magical structures created by GODS, full of obscure mysteries)

I have no words guys, where the hell we can find things done more simply than this.

When someone see that it dates back to 1996, probably it will say , why the hell i'm going to buy an old book from the "past millenium". Its true, after 13 years or relentless progress, in 2009 semiconductor devices have entered in the nanoelectronics era and maybe a more recent texbook is the right choice. Rest assured that in 13 years many changes occurred, but what remains unchanged are the FUNDAMENTALS. This is a book about FUNDAMENTALS, and they will be with us forever. Progress is visible in applications, or better technologies and better understanding of the fundamentals. Fundamental Principles remain the same.
Quantum Mechanics is more than a century old science, but this does not mean that its too old now to be used in the "modern era" of computers, ipod or such other devices. What are we experiencing today is the vital applications of the quantum theories of a century ago. Nothing will change even in the future about Energy Bands, Solid state devices in 2050 will still be explained using energy bands. The Bloch theory on Energy Bands will remain the same, energy quantization is the same as it was experinced by Planck a century ago and so will remain. Maybe 200 years from now we will use light instead of electrons and photonics will become prevalent over electronics, but the fundamentals, such as diffraction will be with us forever.
So think again if you consider this book too old.

Excellent writing style, efficent text layout, and the most important it stresses on energy bands of devices. There is no way to fully understand solid state structures if you cannot draw energy bands.
Excellent text overall, only that it costs a lot, too expensive, more affordable prices are needed for fundamentals books like this

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Text for Introductory Semiconductor Devices
Robert Pierret has, arguably, written the best introductory textbook for learning about semiconductor devices. His book grinds out and explains many of the details that a first-timer should learn. In a sense, he holds your hand through the material and does a very good job of it.

Things I liked a lot:
1) Coverage of the basic physics and equations that model carrier statistics and transport. Use of the equations of state in several different scenarios.
2) Explanation of carrier flow in a p-n junction.
3) Derivation of BJT current equations.
4) Discussion of modern MOSFET effects.
5) Figures used for explanations.
6) Use of computational methods for calculations.
7) Creative end-of-chapter problems (but no solutions!)

Things that should be added:
1) List of equations and material properties in localized areas (this is a biggie, but you can always find them online and make your own!)
2) Better explanation of BJT operation.
3) Discussion of interesting devices (not that MOSFETs and BJTs aren't!).
4) More about processing and fabrication

This is perfect for an introductory book for undergraduates. For more advanced readings, I would consult Streetman or Sze. Streetman addresses the lacking elements of this text. Streetman also has a guided learning section at the end of each chapter with answers to conceptual problems. Pierret, instead, has mostly worked calculation problems scattered throughout the chapters.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Essential Guide to Semiconductors
This is a very readable book that provides an excellent overview of the semiconductor industry. It avoids a lot of technical jargon in discussing a very technical industry.

5-0 out of 5 stars Semiconductors Simplified
Jim Turley's book, The Essential Guide to Semiconductors, is a GREAT read for anyone interested in learning about the building block technologies that power so much of our world. The book offers a truly comprehensive overview of semiconductors, encompassing easy to understand, "byte-sized" technology definitions and interesting chapters regarding the evolution of semiconductor design and manufacturing. Turley also presents interesting big picture perspectives of global market trends, supported by recent data. The reader is guided through the evolution of semiconductor technology, from component parts to integrated circuit technology with relevant concepts explained along the way. What makes the book especially enjoyable is Turley's insider perspective which allows him to make humorous anecdotal observations. All text is well-organized and clearly written. Graphics aid in understanding. Overall, the book offers a solid foundation of knowledge for the non-technical reader and can also be used as an up-to-date refresher course for seasoned practitioners and engineers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book for first time semiconductor lovers
Simple, easy to read and to understand, good pictures at appropriate places to help you visualize the details.

This is a great book for first time semiconductor lovers. The author takes you through a time line of the semiconductor industry and also talks about the industry trends etc. The books talks about semiconductor components and its functions in an "easy to understand" format.

It's a good read especially if you are new to the semiconductor industry and want to get a good understanding of the industry.

Should be called 'The Coffee Table Overview to the Semiconductor Market'! It talked more about people who make them than how to make them.

This book is a must read for anyone in the technology industry - even a software guy like me found the content and processes explained fascinating!I would also urge anyone investing in public companies like Intel, Sun, etc.... to read this and truly understand what those companies do.There were several points in the book where the author would explain something, and the curious side of my brain would question "hrm, I wonder why it's called that... or how that came to be" - and without fail... the next paragraph of the book knew exactly what my curiosity would be and spelled it out.A HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BOOK! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Explanations, but Emphasizes Plug-n-Chug
This is a really good introduction to the physics of semiconductor devices. It starts right from the basics of molecular structure and quantum mechanics and builds up from there. The only prerequisites needed are high school physics and chemistry, first-year calculus (second-year would help, but definitely isn't necessary), and basic knowledge of electronic circuits (knowledge of how diodes and transistors work in a circuit is not at all necessary).

In general this book proceeds in a logical fashion, neither too fast nor too slow. Sufficient detail is given to understand the topics quite fully, yet the reader isn't overwhelmed by detail. Important equations and results are highlighted and sections are divided and organized well. Many examples are given as well as problems after each section with answers provided (but no worked-through solutions). Chapter summaries are among the best I've ever seen in a textbook, and they are supplemented with a Definitions section and Checkpoint section (which is a list of questions meant to make the reader think about the chapter).

Something I don't like about the book is that it emphasizes "plug-and-chug" in most of its problems and examples. By this I mean that all that is needed to solve the problem is to find the right equation, put in the numbers, and produce a solution, often without much thought involved at all. Very few problems require a strong understanding of the material, and actually most would be quite possible for someone who knows nothing about the material by just making an educated guess as to which equation in the chapter would be needed to solve a particular problem.

I would recommend this book for a 1st- or 2nd-year physics or electronics engineering student, but mostly only if the student intends to pursue a career designing semiconductors at the physical level or researching them. For all other electronics, electrical, and computer engineers this book is slightly overkill and most engineers will probably never have to deal with the material that is covers. But, those engineers would probably find the material in this book interesting nevertheless.

4-0 out of 5 stars Review
Got the international edition. Same content so far, but not the hardback i'd expected. Good price though!

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than the rest
I own five different books on semiconductor physics and this text is by far the best. I've also references a sixth book.

I understand the other reviewers complaints but I think this is a weakness of all semiconductor books or proof of just how complicated device physics can get.

It helps to have an instructor step you through a lot of the derivations to make you understand the equations.

I like this book because it explains concepts very well. Making use of the equations and knowing when to make assumptions just comes with practice.

I've found a few mistakes but far fewer than some of the other books I've seen.

My advice to students studying semiconductors is to go to the library and get as many books as you can.

1-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre book; needs major overhaul
Assuming you have already read the previous (rather low) reviews on here, my own review may seem like overkill, but I feel that I must express just how bad Neamen's book is at explaining the material.

Most other reviewers have already covered the important points, so I'll just develop on two that I find particularly unsettling (after wasting several hours trying to see how the author arrived at the solution for ONE problem in his book):How is anyone supposed to figure out the many assumptions this guy makes when he makes no mention of them anywhere else?Also, how is anyone supposed to know what equations to use in what problems?

So far I've found that all the answers in the back of the book have been correct, however the problem is that the reader has to first figure out what equation(s) to use, which is why I'd imagine that many readers believe the answers to be incorrect.In terms of what the author explains, there are (presumably) several ways of obtaining the same answer, but for some reason this is not the case, given that your answer will often be different depending on what equation you use.Assuming the author is even correct in using the formulas he uses, he offers no explanation as to why one equation should be used in one situation but not in another.

Also, this book makes entirely too many assumptions and offers no explanation as to where they come from.Case in point:Problem 1 of Chapter 5 asks the reader to determine the drift current density in a semiconductor material under a certain set of conditions.Well, this is all fine and dandy, except for the fact that the author provides an in-book example IDENTICAL to the problem in which the answer is DIFFERENT.So why do the example and problem answers differ?Because Neamen (in the problem)apparently arbitrarily assumed a different value for electron mobility in said semiconductor material, yet he did not not explain why this different value was assumed in the first place, nor did he offer any clear explanation as to how to determine the supposedly correct electron mobility.

In summary, this book would be somewhat decent if the author spent more time explaining the material more clearly.As it stands, there are simply too many assumptions made and too few explanations for them, making this book a very poor source of information.

1-0 out of 5 stars Awful
Worst book I have come across in my college career. My only D EVER is from a professor that tried to follow this book. Many of his printed solutions to the problems in this book are vague with "Trial and Error" that yield no reasoning to how the problems should be solved.

It would take an excellent professor to make sense of Donald Neamen's, incomplete at best, work. If you don't want to take the word of the many posts of dislike for this book please feel free to read portions for yourself. And please try the wonderful incomplete problems (4 unknowns with 2 equations for example on Problem 4.4). ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive overview of the fabless S/C industry
    In this well written book the author, Rakesh Kumar, shares his 35 years of experience in the semiconductor industry. The book presents a comprehensive overview of the fabless semiconductor technology in an easy to read fashion. The book includes an overall picture of the dynamics of the semiconductor industry as well as a detailed, step-by-step discussion of what is involved in launching a new product as a fabless company. It takes the reader through the lifecycle of a fabless company and points out the challenges and pitfalls of developing a new IC. The book covers the various implementation options and technology choices. It emphasizes the importance of dealing with customers and suppliers and sharing a long term roadmap with them.There is also extensive coverage of unit and development cost, quality and other operational issues.
    Although the book focuses on starting a successful fabless company, many of the issues discussed apply to IDMs and fab-lite companies as well.The book also includes illuminating testimonials of leaders in the semiconductor industry to illustrate the points the author makes in the book.

    I have been using this book in a class I am teaching at the University of Pennsylvania on the "Dynamics of the Semiconductor Industry".The course is part of our Executive Masters of Technology Management program which offers an MSE in Engineering, and is co-sponsored by our Wharton Business School. The comprehensive nature of this book makes it an ideal reading for the class, and provides a context against which to teach. It brings together business and technology considerations in a well explained fashion.The book is a must-read for semiconductor design engineers, non-engineering personnel associated with the industry as well as aspiring entrepreneurs.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive silicon primer
    Dr. Kumar's "Fabless Semiconductor Implementation" is a well written, up to date reference guide for modern custom silicon.The layout is excellent, and the book reads & flows well.Also, I couldn't find a single area that Dr. Kumar fails to address.The book is applicable for a wide range of people from the "smart but inexperienced in silicon" engineer, to the silicon expert seeking a comprehensive reference manual.Lastly, I believe this book is perfect for executives who have silicon groups under them, but have not grown up through the silicon ranks.Highly recommended fabless silicon primer.

    4-0 out of 5 stars NOT "real men have fabs"
    Kumar explains much about the problems of starting up and running a fabless company. He addresses a reader who might or should already have an idea about a niche in chip or system design currently unaddressed by the marketplace. He explains the ecosystem of the semiconductor industry, and where fabless companies fit in. By now [2008], there are several fabs throughout the world that can take your design tapeouts and instantiate them in silicon.

    The text goes through ways to attract funding. Starting with the proverbial friends and family. Then angel investors. Followed by Series A, B etc. All the way to an IPO or perhaps being bought out by a larger, established chip firm. For an American startup, another source of funding is the US government. Through its Small Business Innovative Research grants. Or by contracts with various other federal agencies or departments. Kumar does warn of one danger. You might get success in attracting contracts. But you need to later avoid a sole dependence on these. Otherwise you will never get big; always remaining essentially a research arm of the government.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Resource
    Dr. Kumar's recently released book presents a marvelous compendium of current information gleaned from years of experience and success in the fabless arena.Whether this is your first or your fiftieth fabless company; whether you are an executive managing an existing fabless operation, a technical professional designing the next great semiconductor product, or an entrepreneur compiling a business plan for a new fabless company; the information in this book will prove invaluable to your success.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Reveals basic secrets of semiconductors :)
    This book for me is a "book of revealing semiconductor secrets" which includes good in-depth details of fundamental semiconductors that majority of semiconductor books, published in last 10-15 years do not include. Since it was written over 30 years or so back, it includes basic stuff, which is whatyour advisor or lecturer at university "expects" you to know or understand without a problem (of course in reality nothing is easy unless one knows about it and this book, I feel, does provides those basic answers :o)

    A very elegant, eloquent text on its subject. Explains the major physical processes very clearly, without drowning you in tons of mathematics. The sheer clarity of Pankove's exposition is the greatest appeal of this book. After reading this, you may wish to go onto heftier tomes that delve into greater detail. But consider starting here.

    This book, in spite of its age (2001 era) remains a great introductory overview of the principles and practise of semiconductor device engineering.The clarity and thoroughness of each basic topic are un-surpassed in competitor books.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Falling a bit short in both physics and technology
    I started using this book for my undergraduate course in semiconductor technology, and I believe I would have failed the exam if I relied solely on it.

    Let me explain: the exposition is really exciting and consistent, but if you were interested in the physics side of the phenomena in semiconductors and semiconductor devices, you'd be left wanting for more. "Just when it was getting interesting", you are left with a few paragraphs that just aren't there. If you are the least scientifically curious, this will most likely frustrate you (it is also a credit to Sze as a scientific author, as he made you actually want to know more, through his systematic exposition). I found that even the very old cornerstone book "Electrons and Holes in Semiconductors" by Shockley, gives more satisfaction to the reader, as Shockley has a much broader, freer and thorough approach at discussing the physics of semiconductors.

    From the technological point of view, the book in question doesn't seem very useful. It works on some fundamentals but, again, it will only get your lips wet but thirsty. Still, I think Sze tried to cover the bases in a field that is in explosive development such as semiconductor technology.

    From both points of view - physics and technology - the book feels a lot like a teaser for Sze's masterpiece, "Physics of Semiconductor Devices" (2nd edition), which is a book I would wholeheartedly recommend without reservations. And herein lies the reason why I gave this ("Semiconductor Devices") book only three stars: if I give 5 stars to "Physics of Semiconductor Devices" by the same author, then the object of this review deserves 3. Seeing as though the price of both books is almost the same, this should at least make you think for a moment.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Reference book yes... but thats about it
    As a undergrad electrical engineering student I found this book a horrible choice for an introductory level semiconductor class.As another reviewer mentioned, the example problems (the most important part of any textbook) are few and far between.Most of the book is filled with equations and derivations that are overwhelming and confusing.Clearly the author is well versed in the physics of semiconductor devices; however, the presentation of the information leaves any student reader overwhelmed.Maybe this book makes a handy reference, but only after you have been exposed to the material.As for me, I'll be replacing S.M. Sze's "Semiconductor Devices Physics and Technology" 2nd Ed with something that makes more sense for a student.

    The bible of semiconductor intended for under-/graduate students or as reference for advance scientist is the market of the author. The book consists of basic band gap explanation and carrier transport phenomena going through almost all exploited devices applied nowadays. Beside that, the technology starting form epitaxial growth until the etching mechanism is enclosed here. Moreover, the need of equation derivation is also appended herein since the author tries to explain them in deep.

    Some devices,e.g BARITT, TRAPATT are not explained here. The photonic device are coped in a concise clear way including the solar cell.
    The presentation and pictures attached here is well depicted and really helps the reader to the understanding of the material completely. Furthermore, this book is also well-suited for crash course for some experienced readers. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Well balanced between theory and practice
    This book is an introductory textbook on photovoltaic devices and the underlying physics. Prerequisites are not mentioned by the author. In my opinion, the book is not self-contained, as it requires prior exposure to solid state physics and mathematics (e.g. Bloch's theorem, bra-ket notation, partial differential equations). Although there is a section on band theory, I would recommend other condensed matter textbooks for a rigorous derivation. In terms of device physics, it would be helpful if the reader already has some knowledge at the level of, say, "Solid State Electronic Devices" by Streetman and Banerjee. In terms of quantum physics, the level of "Introduction to Quantum Mechanics" by Griffiths and some understanding of the Shockley-Queisser detailed balance theory should suffice.

    This is NOT a book on the manufacturing of solar cell modules with all the industrial optimization processes, or thin film deposition techniques. It focuses on the phenomenological behavior of photovoltaic devices, from conventional single crystal silicon to thin film solar cells, and their pros and cons. It concludes with the final chapter on modern research ideas for higher efficiency, leaving the detailed discussion to further reading.

    To be really picky, some of the figures look as if they were drawn in Paint (e.g. shaky curves), and there are a few typographical errors. Nonetheless, these imperfections do not impair comprehension.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book
    I am a newcomer to the field of photovoltaics and was looking for a book simple to understand but robust in content that would convey the fundamental concepts effectively. So far I am halfway through the book, reading during my coffee breaks and before bedtime and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I came to choose this book not by anyone's recommendation or referral but by the affordability and judging the table of content and few sample pages. Most of the other books in this area are so expensive, you have to sort of gamble a hefty amount of money to gain a very little perspective on the nature and scope of the field of photovoltaics. This book so far seems to be very good except there are some countable number of typos that sort of distract during the reading.

    4-0 out of 5 stars great solar cell book
    This is a great book for senior undergrads and graduate students.It focuses on other solar cell materials besides Silicon.It was a great reference for teaching material and I referenced it in my PhD thesis.I recommend this book in addition to Martin Green's Solar Cell book (standard undergrad solar cell reference book.)

    Editorial Review

    Product Description
    In the first three and a half years of its existence, Fairchild Semiconductor developed, produced, and marketed the device that would become the fundamental building block of the digital world: the microchip. Founded in 1957 by eight former employees of the Shockley Semiconductor Laboratory, Fairchild created the model for a successful Silicon Valley start-up: intense activity with a common goal, close collaboration, and a quick path to the market (Fairchild's first device hit the market just ten months after the company's founding). Fairchild Semiconductor was one of the first companies financed by venture capital, and its success inspired the establishment of venture capital firms in the San Francisco Bay area. These firms would finance the explosive growth of Silicon Valley over the next several decades.

    This history of the early years of Fairchild Semiconductor examines the technological, business, and social dynamics behind its innovative products. The centerpiece of the book is a collection of documents, reproduced in facsimile, including the company's first prospectus; ideas, sketches, and plans for the company's products; and a notebook kept by cofounder Jay Last that records problems, schedules, and tasks discussed at weekly meetings. A historical overview, interpretive essays, and an introduction to semiconductor technology in the period accompany these primary documents. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Missing Book in Silicon Valley History
    Bravo.A well written, well researched book that fills in the missing gaps in early Fairchild history. Using the original lab notebook of Jay Last one of the founders of Fairchild, this book sketches out the early technical decisions that the Fairchild founders made in their first three years. It traces the evolution of first silicon mesa transistors, to a race between Gordon Moore and Jean Hoerni in making the first PNP and NPN transistors. Hoerni's invention of the planar transistor was an outgrowth of that effort. Once the planar process was in hand it was clear that that someone was going to interconnect those transistors.

    Lots of surprises and insights in this book. The biggest one for me was the vociferous objection to the integrated circuit product line by Fairchild's VP of Sales. In hindsight it makes sense, but I never would have guessed it.

    Minor quibbles on some editing and a awkwardly constructed introduction.

    Along with Broken Genius: The Rise and Fall of William Shockley and The Man Behind the Microchip: Robert Noyce and the Invention of Silicon Valley, this book makes a trilogy about the key players in the semiconductor industry.

    Essential reading to anyone interested in the technical history of Silicon Valley. ... Read more

    With all the clarity and hands-on practicality of the best-selling first edition, this revised version explains the ins and outs of SPICE, plus gives new data on modeling advanced devices such as MESFETs, ISFETs, and thyristors. And because it's the only book that describes the models themselves, it helps readers gain maximum value from SPICE, rather than just telling them how to run the program. This guide is also distinctive in covering both MOS and FET models. Step by step, it takes the reader through the modeling process, providing complete information on a variety of semiconductor devices for designing specific circuit applications. These include: Pn junction and Schottky diodes; bipolar junction transistor (BJT); junction field effect transistor (JFET); metal oxide semiconductor transistor (MOST); metal semiconductor field effect transistor (MESFET); ion sensitive field effect transistor (ISFET); semiconductor controlled rectifier (SCR-thyristor). ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good, if you want to design a SPICE simulator
    Eh, it's a decent-enough book.The author is obviously well-versed.But, there's a lot of background theorems and proofs that make this feel more like a math-text than a "tweak this to get this" solution for SPICE modeling.I thought Chap7 (noise) plus Appendix-A and Appendix-B were solid, the rest would be useful if you plan to design your own SPICE-sim, not use something already out there.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A helpful book to understand semiconductor model
    Spice is a software package that become a de facto standar in circuit simulation. But as in any other circuit simulator we need to define the accurate input model to get the accurate results. And this book describe inmore detail the components that is used in almost any electronic circuit,i.e. semiconductor devices.The value that is a credit point for this bookisnot just how detail the description of the semiconductor model is inorder to get the accurate parameters but also how to use those parametersin Spice. So, for you who new to this circuit simulator there is no need toworry because this book explain how the circuit model is built using Spice.And for you who need the basic theory of semiconductor model the book givestwo nice appendices on that one. One chapter that is need to be explored inmore detail is about noise and distortion (hopefully in the next editionthe editor could have more on that topic). Finally, this is a "must beread" book for you who want to get excellent results in modellingelectronic circuit.

    (For you who understand more clearly in Indonesian)Spice adalah sebuah paket aplikasi yang secara defacto merupakan standaruntuk simulai dan analisa rangkaian elektronik. Namun secara umum berlakupula bahwa untuk menghasilkan simulasi rangkaian elektronik secara akuratdibutuhkan parameter-parameter yang akurat pula untuk setiap modelnya. Bukuini memberikan ulasan mendalam tentang parameter-parameter bagi pemodelandevice semikonduktor. Kelebihan yang dimiliki buku ini tidak hanya padabagaimana penghitungan dan pengukuran parameter untuk model tersebut tetapibagaimana menggunakannya pada simulasi rangkaian menggunakan SPICE. BagiAnda yang baru mendalami spice jangan khawatir karena buku ini jugamemberikan ulasan tentang sistem pemodelan dalam spice. Sebaliknya bagianda yang baru dalam pemodelan semikonduktor buku ini juga memberikanapendiks tentang teori dasar semikonduktor. Satu hal yang mungkin perludibahas lebih mendalam adalah tentang Nose dan Distorsi (mudah-mudahandalam edisi berikutnya materi ini dapat lebih dikembangkan).

    Product Description

    Semiconductor Device Physics and Design provides a fresh and unique teaching tool. Over the last decade device performances are driven by new materials, scaling, heterostructures and new device concepts. Semiconductor devices have mostly relied on Si but increasingly GaAs, InGaAs and heterostructures made from Si/SiGe, GaAs/AlGaAs etc have become important. Over the last few years one of the most exciting new entries has been the nitride based heterostructures. New physics based on polar charges and polar interfaces has become important as a result of the nitrides. Nitride based devices are now used for high power applications and in lighting and display applications. For students to be able to participate in this exciting arena, a lot of physics, device concepts, heterostructure concepts and materials properties need to be understood. It is important to have a textbook that teaches students and practicing engineers about all these areas in a coherent manner.

    Semiconductor Device Physics and Design starts out with basic physics concepts including the physics behind polar heterostructures and strained heterostructures. Important devices ranging from p-n diodes to bipolar and field effect devices is then discussed. An important distinction users will find in this book is the discussion presented on device needs from the perspective of various technologies. For example, how much gain is needed in a transistor, how much power, what kind of device characteristics are needed. Not surprisingly the needs depend upon applications. The needs of an A/D or D/A converter will be different from that of an amplifier in a cell phone. Similarly the diodes used in a laptop will place different requirements on the device engineer than diodes used in a mixer circuit. By relating device design to device performance and then relating device needs to system use the student can see how device design works in real world.

    This book is comprehensive without being overwhelming. The focus was to make this a useful text book so that the information contained is cohesive without including all aspects of device physics. The lesson plans demonstrated how this book could be used in a 1 semester or 2 quarter sequence.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent introductory book for compound semiconductors device physics
    There are many classic books out there for introductory semiconductor device physics written by eminent scholars such as Streetman, Pierret, Neamen and many more. These books were written for Silicon based devices. On the other hand, with the recent research advances in compound semiconductors, it becomes imperative to have a new book which is tuned to the fundamentals required to understand the physics behind these materials and the corresponding devices. This book has indeed been tailor made to meet such demands. The first chapter is an excellent introduction to crystal structures of semiconductors, much better than the earlier mentioned books. But, in my humble opinion, the second chapter takes the cake. I have never come across such an elegant analysis of band structures of devices in a book meant for electrical engineers. Generally, such discussions have been limited to physics textbooks which are not that easy to comprehend. I can go about other chapters to, but then, I believe you have got my point by now. This book treats the material is a totally different style which is very reader friendly.

    Another salient feature of this book is the pedagogical tools employed by the authors. Every now and then, by using simple analogies, flowcharts and detailed illustrations, concepts have been nicely explained.

    There is another book on compound semiconductor device physics by Sandip Tiwari which ishard to find these days. Moreover, its more inclined towards graduate students than undergraduates and hence expects the reader to have strong fundamentals. Hence, I will recommend that book as a supplement to this one.

    So, if you are interested in understanding device physics for both Si based and compound semiconductors, this is an excellent introductory book. Being a doctoral candidate in solid state devices, I believe this book has a unique place in your collection. Also, the authors are really eminent researchers in their fields and this book is indeed a testament to their prowess in this subject. ... Read more

    Product Description
    A practical guide to semiconductor manufacturing from process control to yield modeling and experimental design

    Fundamentals of Semiconductor Manufacturing and Process Control covers all issues involved in manufacturing microelectronic devices and circuits, including fabrication sequences, process control, experimental design, process modeling, yield modeling, and CIM/CAM systems. Readers are introduced to both the theory and practice of all basic manufacturing concepts.

    Following an overview of manufacturing and technology, the text explores process monitoring methods, including those that focus on product wafers and those that focus on the equipment used to produce wafers. Next, the text sets forth some fundamentals of statistics and yield modeling, which set the foundation for a detailed discussion of how statistical process control is used to analyze quality and improve yields.

    The discussion of statistical experimental design offers readers a powerful approach for systematically varying controllable process conditions and determining their impact on output parameters that measure quality. The authors introduce process modeling concepts, including several advanced process control topics such as run-by-run, supervisory control, and process and equipment diagnosis.

    Critical coverage includes the following:
    * Combines process control and semiconductor manufacturing
    * Unique treatment of system and software technology and management of overall manufacturing systems
    * Chapters include case studies, sample problems, and suggested exercises
    * Instructor support includes electronic copies of the figures and an instructor's manual

    Graduate-level students and industrial practitioners will benefit from the detailed exami?nation of how electronic materials and supplies are converted into finished integrated circuits and electronic products in a high-volume manufacturing environment.

    An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available from the Wiley editorial department.

    An Instructor Support FTP site is also available. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good to take the overview of SPC and Semiconductor processes
    The beginning chapters cover the semiconductor processes, and the last half chapters cover fundamental level of Statistical Process Control. Some explanations about the SPC are not sufficient because of the limited pages, compared to books of SPC. However, this book contains a lot of useful tables, and it is a good size to carry around. Thus, I think this is a good book to review SPC and Semiconductor Processes quickly.

    For those of you working in a fab, or designing processes to be used in it, May gives a good summary of what is generally known and non-proprietary. He explains the key steps in photolithography, wet and dry etching, the different ways to dope, and deposition processes.

    But along with these steps, every fab needs to monitor them for quality control. So we get discussions of how to measure data about a wafer. Like using inteferometry or ellipsometry to measure the thickness of a deposited thin film. Or using a four point probe for capacitance or resistance measurements.

    A lot of the text also deals with statistics and how to maximise your device yield. Involves numerous modelling choices and process controls. ... Read more
