Semiconductor Basics: Doping
How does doping make an intrinsic semiconductor into P-Type or N-Type material. and how dose doping create free electrons or holes in intrinsic crystal.
Semiconductor Basics: Crystals
The behavior of electrons and holes is fundamental to understanding how semiconductor devices work. In an intrinsic semiconductor, thermal energy can cause valence electrons to jump to the conduction band, leaving behind a “hole” that can be filled by another electron. This creates thermally-induced electron movement and an equal number of holes moving in the opposite direction.
Semiconductor Basics: Atomic Structure
In chemistry, the structure of an atom is crucial in understanding how it behaves and interacts with other atoms. The basic structure of an atom consists of a central nucleus made up of protons and neutrons, surrounded by a cloud of electrons in various energy levels or shells. In this cloud, electrons move in specific regions called orbitals.
LC Regenerative Snubber for SEPIC Converter
The SEPIC converter is a type of DC/DC converter commonly used in electric vehicle (EV) applications. Unlike regular buck-boost converters, the output voltage polarity in the SEPIC converter is non-inverting. However, it suffers from energy stored in the leakage inductance of the primary inductor, which can damage the MOSFET switch. A snubber circuit is used to protect the switch, and ringing created from resonance increases the EMI of the converter.
