MOS Field Effect Transistors  (MOSFETs) provide many advantages. in particular, they have very high input impedance and are able to be used in very low current circuits. This is particularly important for integrated circuit technology where power limitations are a major consideration. In order to understand how  MOSFETs work, it is essential to understand the underlying concepts of a  Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor (MOS)  capacitor which forms the basic building block of a MOSFET. MOSFETs are again an integral part of semiconductor memories.   

    What will you learn

    What is this 'Micro-Learning Course' about?

    MOSFETs are important for integrated circuit technology where power limitations are a major consideration.

    This course will provide learners with an understanding of Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor (MOS) capacitor and MOS Field Effect Transistor (MOSFET). It also covers the various types of MOSFET memory devices

    Who is this course designed for?

    Participants who have completed Fundamentals of Semiconductor Materials and Semiconductor p-n Junction and Contacts courses.

    What will you take away?

    At the end of this course, you will be able to:

    1. Draw the cross-section of a simple MOS capacitor
    2. Explain accumulation, depletion and inversion of a MOS capacitor
    3. Explain the threshold voltage of a MOS capacitor
    4. List the non-ideal conditions of a MOS capacitor
    5. Explain the basic operation of a MOSFET
    6. Define the operating conditions and characteristics of a MOSFET
    7. Explain the operation of basic CMOS gates
    8. State the differences between volatile and non-volatile memory devices
    9. Explain the cell structure of MOSFET Static Random Access Memory (SRAM) and Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM )
