Description

A definitive and up-to-date handbook of semiconductor devices

Semiconductor devices, the basic components of integrated circuits, are responsible for the rapid growth of the electronics industry over the past fifty years. Because there is a growing need for faster and more complex systems for the information age, existing semiconductor devices are constantly being studied for improvement, and new ones are being continually invented. As a result, a large number of types and variations of devices are available in the literature. The Second Edition of this unique engineering guide continues to be the only available complete collection of semiconductor devices, identifying 74 major devices and more than 200 variations of these devices.

As in the First Edition, the value of this text lies in its comprehensive, yet highly readable presentation and its easy-to-use format, making it suitable for a wide range of audiences.

  • Essential information is presented for a quick, balanced overview
  • Each chapter is designed to cover only one specific device, for easy and focused reference
  • Each device is discussed in detail, always including its history, its structure, its characteristics, and its applications
The Second Edition has been significantly updated with eight new chapters, and the material rearranged to reflect recent developments in the field. As such, it remains an ideal reference source for graduate students who want a quick survey of the field, as well as for practitioners and researchers who need quick access to basic information, and a valuable pragmatic handbook for salespeople, lawyers, and anyone associated with the semiconductor industry.

Author Information

KWOK K. NG received his PhD from Columbia University in 1979 and his BS degree from Rutgers University in 1975, both in electrical engineering. Since 1980, he has been a Technical Manager with Agere Systems (formerly Bell Laboratories of AT&T and then of Lucent Technologies) at the Murray Hill location in New Jersey. His activities include Si MOS devices, SiGe heterojunction bipolar transistors, and recently compound-semiconductor high-speed and high-power devices. Dr. Ng has held positions as editor of IEEE Electron Device Letters and as liaison to IEEE Press.

Reviews

"...I feel that I?m performing a public service for readers by recommending The Complete Guide to Semiconductor Devices, Second Edition...covers just about anything you?d care to know about semiconductors.... This new edition...is a testament to the endurance of the earlier work." (Chip Scale, March 2003)

"...this book...is an impressive achievement...I would recommend its addition to any university library?s science or engineering reference collection." (E-Streams, Vol. 6, No. 5, May 2003)

"...a useful text and one that should be available in a well-stocked library..." (ChemPhysChem, Vol 4(8), 2003)

"...I feel that I'm performing a public service for readers by recommending 'The Complete Guide to Semiconductor Devices (Second Edition), by Dr. K.K. Ng.
Dr. Ng earned his Ph.D in electrical engineering from Columbia University. Since 1980, he's been a technical manager with Agere Systems (formerly Bell Labs), in Murray Hill, N.J. (The book is published by Wiley Interscience [wiley.com], and is available wherever books of this ilk are sold).
The author is no slouch when it comes to technical publishing either. He's been editor of IEEE Electron Device Letters and is a liaison ot the IEEE Press, so it's a pretty good bet he knows what he's talking about.
Now, I don't know Dr. Ng personally, nor do I get any money for mentioning this book or any other. (I did get the book free to review, though!)
I suspect that Dr. Ng covers just about anything you'd care to know about semiconductors within its 700+ pages. This new edition, which follows the first by eight years, is a testament to the endurance of the earlier work." --Ron Iscoff, Editor, Chip Scale Review Online
