Complete Guide to Semiconductor Devices / Edition 2 available in Hardcover
A definitive and up-to-date handbook of semiconductor devices
Semiconductor devices, the basic components of integratedcircuits, are responsible for the rapid growth of the electronicsindustry over the past fifty years. Because there is a growing needfor faster and more complex systems for the information age,existing semiconductor devices are constantly being studied forimprovement, and new ones are being continually invented. As aresult, a large number of types and variations of devices areavailable in the literature. The Second Edition of thisunique engineering guide continues to be the only availablecomplete collection of semiconductor devices, identifying 74 majordevices and more than 200 variations of these devices.
As in the First Edition, the value of this text lies inits comprehensive, yet highly readable presentation and itseasy-to-use format, making it suitable for a wide range ofaudiences.
- Essential information is presented for a quick, balancedoverview
- Each chapter is designed to cover only one specific device, foreasy and focused reference
- Each device is discussed in detail, always including itshistory, its structure, its characteristics, and itsapplications
About the Author
KWOK K. NG received his PhD from Columbia University in 1979 andhis BS degree from Rutgers University in 1975, both in electricalengineering. Since 1980, he has been a Technical Manager with AgereSystems (formerly Bell Laboratories of AT&T and then of LucentTechnologies) at the Murray Hill location in New Jersey. Hisactivities include Si MOS devices, SiGe heterojunction bipolartransistors, and recently compound-semiconductor high-speed andhigh-power devices. Dr. Ng has held positions as editor of IEEEElectron Device Letters and as liaison to IEEE Press.

What People are Saying About This
"...I feel that I'm performing a public service for readers byrecommending 'The Complete Guide to Semiconductor Devices (SecondEdition), by Dr. K.K. Ng. Dr. Ng earned his Ph.D in electrical engineering from ColumbiaUniversity. Since 1980, he's been a technical manager with AgereSystems (formerly Bell Labs), in Murray Hill, N.J. (The book ispublished by Wiley Interscience [wiley.com], and is availablewherever books of this ilk are sold). The author is no slouch when it comes to technical publishingeither. He's been editor of IEEE Electron Device Letters and is aliaison ot the IEEE Press, so it's a pretty good bet he knows whathe's talking about. Now, I don't know Dr. Ng personally, nor do I get any money formentioning this book or any other. (I did get the book free toreview, though!) I suspect that Dr. Ng covers just about anything you'd care to knowabout semiconductors within its 700+ pages. This new edition, whichfollows the first by eight years, is a testament to the enduranceof the earlier work." Ron Iscoff, Editor, Chip Scale ReviewOnline
