Silicon-based microelectronics has gradually more suitable in a number of performance-to-cost metrics. yet after a long time of processor scaling, primary obstacles and substantial new demanding situations have emerged. the combination of compound semiconductors is the top candidate to handle lots of those matters and to proceed the relentless pursuit of extra robust, reasonable processors.
III-V Compound Semiconductors: Integration with Silicon-Based Microelectronics covers fresh growth during this region, addressing the 2 significant revolutions taking place within the semiconductor undefined: integration of compound semiconductors into Si microelectronics, and their fabrication on large-area Si substrates. The authors current a systematic and technological exploration of GaN, GaAs, and III-V compound semiconductor units inside of Si microelectronics, construction a primary beginning to assist readers take care of correct layout and alertness matters.
Explores silicon-based CMOS purposes constructed in the state-of-the-art DARPA program
Providing an summary of platforms, units, and their part fabrics, this book:
- Describes constitution, part diagrams, and actual and chemical houses of III-V and Si fabrics, in addition to integration challenges
- Focuses at the key benefits of GaN, together with its significance in commercializing a brand new category of strength diodes and transistors
- Analyzes extra conventional III-V fabrics, discussing their advantages and disadvantages for equipment integration with Si microelectronics
- Elucidates houses of III-V semiconductors and describes methods to guage and represent their attributes
- Introduces novel applied sciences for the size and evaluate of fabric caliber and machine properties
- Investigates cutting-edge optical units, LEDs, Si photonics, high-speed, high-power III-V fabrics and units, III-V sun telephone units, and more
Assembling the paintings of popular specialists, this can be a reference for scientists and engineers operating on the intersection of Si and compound semiconductor expertise. Its accomplished insurance is efficacious for either scholars and specialists during this burgeoning field.
