8 The forward-Bias Region: It is entered when the terminal voltage v is positive. In the forward region the i-v relationship is closely approximated by: i=i s (e v/nVT -1)(¤) Where V T =KT/q k=Boltzmann’s constant= 1.38*10 -23 joules/kelvin T=the absolute temperature in kelvins=273+temperature in °C q=The magnitude of electronic charge= 1.6*10 -19 coulomb n has a value between 1 and 2 For appreciable current I in the forward direction, specially for i>>I s, (¤) can be approximated by the relationship i=i s e v/nV T v=n V T ln(i/i S ) Example: A silicon diode said to be a 1mA device displays a forward voltage of 0.7v at a current of 1mA. Evaluate the junction scaling constant I S in the event that n is either 1 or 2. Solution: Since i=I s e v/nVT Then I s =i e -v/nVT n=1: I s = 10 -3 e -700/25 =6.9*10 -16 A N=2: I s = 10 -3 e -700/50 =8.3*10 -10 A 8

9 Figure 2.10 A simple circuit used to illustrate the analysis of circuits in which the diode is forward conducting. Example: Determine the current I D and the diode voltage V D of the circuit with V DD =5V and R=1kΩ. Assume that the diode has a current of 1mA at a voltage of 0.7V and that its voltage drop changes by 0.1V for every decade change in current. Solution: we assume that V D =0.7V Then, by employing the equation and considering That 2.3nV T =0.1V, we obtain: V 1 =0.7V, I 1 =1mA and I 2 =4.3mA results in V 2 =0.763V. Thus results permit to us to get: and 9
