Semiconductors: A Comprehensive Guide
Without semiconductors, the world would be a very different place; we would have no electronic hand calculators, microwave ovens, digital alarm clocks, cellphones, personal computers, electronically controlled transmissions, or washing machines.
Apart from going through the basics of Semiconductors, the eBook Semiconductors: a Comprehensive Guide provides:
- an in-depth treatment of the physics of operation of power semiconductor devices that are commonly used by the power electronics industry.
- a walkthrough of the treatment of all types of power rectifiers and transistors.
- a comprehensive description of a wide range of semiconductor materials and the developments of various materials and tools made of those materials
- a thorough analysis of the Global Semiconductor Market, explaining where we are at and where we are headed.

Many publications have already dealt with the unwanted parasitic turn-on (PTO) of semiconductor devices and how to get rid of it. But in the same-titled paper, it was shown that high power applications may even benefit from a small PTO.more...
Wide band-gap power semiconductor devices such as SiC and GaN devices break thermal operating limits and switching speed limits of the Si semiconductors.more...
