0.2. Purpose and Goal of the Text

The purpose of this text is to explore the internal behavior of semiconductor devices, so that we can understand the relation between the device geometry and material parameters on one hand and the resulting electrical characteristics on the other hand.

This text provides the link between the physics of semiconductors and the design of electronic circuits. The material covered in this text is therefore required to successfully design CMOS-based integrated circuits.
