What will i learn?

  • All the basic concepts of semiconductors
  • Semiconductors will help them to understand how electronic devices like diodes, transistors, etc work
  • Concept of Energy, Valence and Conduction band diagrams
  • Understand the internal structure of diodes
  • Intrinsic and extrinsic semiconductors
  • Clears the basic concepts of electronic devices (EDC)
  • Should have basic idea about conductors or you can watch my course-1 which deals with conductors.

Course overview

Before enrolling in the course I expect that you must be having a good idea about current electricity, chemistry and some knowledge about conductors. If you don't have any idea about it then you can enroll in rest of my courses which deals with all these concepts in depth.

In this course, you will learn all the things about semiconductors from scratch. Below I  had listed certain topics this would be our roadmap. There would also be certain topics that I'm not giving in this particular roadmap but its concept would be required to proceed further. So I had also explained that part.

@ Roadmap:-

  1. Introduction to semiconductors

  2. Difference between conductors, semiconductors, and an insulators

  3. Energy band diagram for sodium and silicon atoms

  4. Valence band and Conduction band diagram for sodium and silicon atoms

  5. Forbidden Energy Gap

  6. Intrinsic and Extrinsic Semiconductors

  7. Internal structure or internal working of the p-n junction diode (Application part)

So this was all about the course.

@ Outcome of the course:-

  • As you all know that I'm making series on electronics, this is a course-2 and this course is a prerequisite to the next course where we will be dealing with diode circuits, Bjt and Fet's circuits, etc. So to understand the core electronics part or how any electronic device behaves, you should be very much well acquainted with the part of the semiconductor.

  • For those who want to perceive their future in the VLSI domain, this course is purely meant for them.

  • And there are many more advantages which I'm not revealing here, you yourself will get to know what knowledge you have acquired after completing this course.



Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who wants to learn semiconductors in depth
  • Beginner who wants to start his/her career in electronics
  • Beginner who wants to perceive his career in VLSI domain

    I enrolled in the 1st course as well and again I would like to tell the same thing. The instructor is teaching the concept in depth. I'm enjoying this course as well

    Enjoying the content. Before enrolling in the course I use to think that semiconductors is difficult to understand but sir has explained the concept in very easy way.

    Explanation and presentation was great but accent needs to be improved, else everything is great.
