Homework Help: Reverse Saturation Current ,Is Formula

  1. Jan 13, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I am work on VLSI study currently and I am having problem in the static power consumption.

    2. Relevant equations

    I have an equation here, I= Is [e^qv/kt - 1] and I just wish to know is there any formula for calculation the Is.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Welcome to Physics Forums.

    First, I have moved your post from the Introductory Physics subforum to the Engineering, Comp Sci, & Technology subforum.

    Second: is this for a homework assignment? (If not, there is yet another forum to move it to...)

    Thirdly, I'll actually address the question you asked :smile:! As far as I know, the value of Is is usually given in any homework question using that formula -- unless the question is asking you to find Is, in which case the other variables would have to be given to you.

    There's a formula for Is. But I cant tell you if it is a homework problem.
