Editorial Reviews

Review


"This book is better than other texts available on this topic because of its straightforward intuitive descriptions combined with the artfully presented, detailed, and quantitatively rendered illustrations."-- Matthew Grayson, Northeastern University


"The author is eloquent and presents complex material in a logical sequence, which provides for comparatively easy reading. I find the many numerical examples (including the MatLab scripts) particularly useful from a pedagogical perspective since they invite students to become more actively engaged with the novel material and concepts. In addition, they provide visual support for some otherwise abstract mathematical relationships."--Godi Fischer, University of Rhode Island


--This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

First off I must say that I would rate this book at least a 4 stars if it were not the fact that I have to use it as homework for one of my classes. Let me explain:

Whenever I read the book it does a fairly good job at explaining the core concepts like what "this" is for or "why" (although note, this is a complex textbook so you will have to read a lot to fully understand a specific concept). It even has some great example of applications that I can easily follow, and I think to myself: "Ok, yeah that makes sense...ok....ok....gotcha.....", but then when I get to the end of a chapter, where they ask all the problem sets, they ask significantly harder problems that DO NOT build off the previous problems or only sort of build off of an example from the chapter.

Essentially each problem requires a thorough understanding of the chapter, which means you REALLY have to understand it. I'm one of those students that has to teach myself the concepts for this class using just the book because my teacher is horrible at explaining and/or teaching. The ability of this book to teach you the principles of semiconductor devices only does half of its job.

This book doesn't really assist in the learning process of the applications and problem sets. I find myself struggling to grasp the math concepts, or applications of them. There IS NOT a solutions manual out there and there aren't answers in the back of the book (well there are some for selected problems, but they doesn't show ANY steps, just the answer).

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Penn State Undergrad (Electrical Engineering) on September 11, 2010
Format: Hardcover
I have only currently read up to chapter two. Here is what I've noticed about the book. The content in the chapters is very straightfoward and to the point. The summary at the end of the chapter does a good job reviewing the main points and formulas that were in the text. However I found that the questions at the end of the chapter are somewhat vague about what they are asking for and you have to assume several things to get an answer.

I used this book for a course I took on introduction to semiconductor devices (grad. course). I found it a delight to read for several reasons: Concepts were explained in a clear, concise manner; Questions per chapter could easily be solved following what was discussed in the chapter (not very much flipping back and forth to find the appropriate equation); Examples were plentiful, highlighted (for easy location), easy to follow, and related to the questions at the end of the book.

Overall, a good read, accessible to anyone with some knowledge of calculus (Chemistry or Physics preknowledge is not really necessary)

The overall development of semiconductors from scratch can be difficult. The practical approach and the step by step rendering process is explained in detail. The review questoins for each chapter and the examples with the solutions in between create for a complete understanding of semiconductor manufactoring.
