This question is somewhat relating to electronics but I think it fits better with physics.
The leccture here (slide 13) shows that the gate to body capacitance (Cgb) in linear region is 0. However, there is no explanation at all.
I tried to find the explanation from the reference book and got...
I am having a hard time understanding flat band voltage in MOS capacitor.
Please see the picture below about MOS capacitor.
Q0 is a fixed effective charge at the surface between oxide and semiconductor and it is positive here.
The voltage across the oxide caused by the fixed charge ψox =...
A point has no dimension and a line, which has dimension, is made from points together. How does something without dimension create something with dimension? I can't really make any sense of it. Could you share your opinions?
I am reading about Boost-Flyback converter and this is a bit confusing.
Could you explain the role of D1 and C1 here?
The lecture says that "D1 and C1deliver to the output the energy stored in the transformer leakage inductance Ld." I can't understand what is meant here.
And could you explain...
I am confused about shared contacted diffusion in CMOS layout.
Is it possible to use shared contacted diffusion for two nMOS transistors with different widths?
BTW, two nMOS and pMOS transistors are never shared contacted diffusion, right?
Hi, this is part of an application note entitled "Low-Noise Amplifier Stability Concept to Practical Considerations" from Maxim.
Could you help me with the question in the picture? Thanks.
In Spice, the capacitance between two points x, y is defined as follows:
Cxy = - dQx / dVy for x != y
Cxx = dQx/dVx
Could anyone help me explain why it is defined like that?
I know that C = dQ/dV but the formula above seems strange to me.
Is my understanding below correct?
This is not a homework question. I need to calculate input impedance for a LNA and this is part of it.
How do you calculate input impedance, Zin, for the circuit below?
I tried by applying an input voltage, V1, and calculate Iin.
Input impedance will be V1/Iin. However, the expression...
This is not a homework, just a problem that I can't figure out. Please help.
Assuming that I have a low pass filter with cutting frequency, fc and a signal with many different frequencies (with some below fc and some above fc) is applied to the input of the filter. As we know, the...
I want to ask one question about wavelength. Here is a picture defining wavelength.
To get a sinusoidal wave in space, we have to use a sinusoidal voltage source at transmitter, right?
I mean if there is a sinusoidal voltage source at the transmitter to create a sinusoidal wave in space.
I want to ask your help about energy.
Why can't energy change abruptly?
If energy E changes abruptly then power P = dE/dt = ∞. I would like to know why this is impossible?
I know that energy has to be conserved and they can only change from one form to the other. But why this process...
I am reading an old thread and because it is too old I can't post reply.

I want to ask about the bold part. In the case, what is the voltage across the diode pair, zero or voltage source (Vin) when it is in positive half?
I need to understand the proof about complex conjugate of a function.
g(z) = g*(z*)
I don't know what it it called in English and can't search for it.
If anyone knows where can I get the proof, please let me know.
Thanks for help.
I want to design an ADC with these specifications:
Fin = 20MHz
ENOB > 4
Power consumption P < 1mW
Could anyone suggest me some ADC for this kind? I have searched a lot in
IEEE but there are only two ADC with SAR ADC and time-interleaved ADC.
The ultralow power consumption...
Can you help me check my work and tell me what is the application of the circuit?

The Attempt at a Solution
I want to ask a question.
In MOS transistors, the sizes of transistors often are given in the form:
W/L = 50/0.5 or W/L = 10/0.5
I think there are implies behind the writing. If not why they don't just write W/L = 100 or W/L = 20
And can you explain the difference between the two:
Can you explain why the light increases when Prof. Lewin touch the
end of the tube with his finger?
He explained it but I am not quite understand it.

I want to know if this is true or not before learning it?
Here is a set of pictures showing the ways electrons and hole move under electric field.
Can anyone tell me how the hole will move after this? I mean that where the hole will move after the final image.
