##### Practice Questions
1. Semiconductors do not support strong current i.e., a semiconductor is damaged when strong current passes through it. Why?
2. Name the semiconductor device that can be used to regulate an unregulated dc power supply.
3. A semiconductor device is connected in a series circuit with a battery and a resistance. A current is found to pass through the circuit. When polarity of the battery is reversed, the current drops to almost zero. Name the semiconductor device.
4. The output of a 2 input AND gate is fed as input to a NOT gate. Write the truth table for the final output of the combination. Name this new logic gate formed.
5. Which special type of diode can act as a voltage regulator? Give the symbol of this diode and draw the general shape of its V-I characteristics.

###### Try These
• What is the function of base region of a transistor? Why is this region made thin and lightly doped? Draw a circuit diagram to study the input and output characteristics of n-p-n transistor in a common emitter configuration. Show these characteristics graphically.
• In an n-p-n transistor circuit, the collector current is 10mA. If 90% of the electrons emitted reach the collector, find the base current and emitter current.
• A p-n junction is fabricated from a semiconductor with a band gap of 2.8 eV. Can it detect a wavelength of 600 nm? Justify your answer.
• A carrier wave of peak voltage 12v is used to transmit a message signal. What should be the peak voltage of the modulating signal in order to have a modulation index of 75%?
• If the current gain of a CE – Amplifier is 98 and collector current Ic = 4 mA, determine the base current.

#### In half-wave rectification, what is the output frequency if the input frequency is 50 Hz. What is the output frequency of a full-wave rectifier for the same input frequency?

Input frequency = 50 Hz
For a half-wave rectifier, the output frequency is equal to the input frequency.
Output frequency = 50 Hz
For a full-wave rectifier, the output frequency is twice the input frequency.
Output frequency = 2 × 50 = 100 Hz

#### Two amplifiers are connected one after the other in series (cascaded). The first amplifier has a voltage gain of 10 and the second has a voltage gain of 20. If the input signal is 0.01 volt, calculate the output ac signal.

Voltage gain of the first amplifier, V1 = 10
Voltage gain of the second amplifier, V2 = 20
Input signal voltage, Vi = 0.01 V
Output AC signal voltage = Vo
The total voltage gain of a two-stage cascaded amplifier is given by the product of voltage gains of both the stages, i.e.,
V = V1 × V2 = 10 × 20 = 200
We have the relation:
Vo = V × Vi = 200 × 0.01 = 2 V
Therefore, the output AC signal of the given amplifier is 2 V.

#### Why are elemental dopants for Silicon or Germanium usually chosen from group XIII or group XV?

The size of dopant atoms should be such as not to distort the pure semiconductor lattice structure and yet easily contribute a charge carrier on forming co-valent bonds with Si or Ge.

#### Sn, C, and Si, Ge are all group XIV elements. Yet, Sn is a conductor, C is an insulator while Si and Ge are semiconductors. Why?

The energy gap for Sn is 0 eV, for C is 5.4 eV, for Si is 1.1 eV and for Ge is 0.7eV, related to their atomic size.

#### In a CE transistor amplifier there is a current and voltage gain associated with the circuit. In other words there is a power gain. Considering power a measure of energy, does the circuit voilate conservation of energy?

No, the extra power required for amplified output is obtained from the DC source.
