This 16-part training series will help students master the fundamentals of semiconductor electronics. The series covers semiconductor electronics to include diodes, transistors, field effect transistors, thyristors, ICs, and optoelectronic devices.
The Semiconductors series is designed for new electronics students who have little or no knowledge of the field. It does not assume any previous knowledge of electronics. All the terms used are defined or explained throughout the courses, so students are not required to have an electronics vocabulary to understand the content.
