- March 1999: Regarding Solid State Applet Webservers --- 1) jas2.eng.buffalo.edu
is the development server, always current and always up-to-date; 2) jas.eng.buffalo.edu
is a permanent, dedicated server, only serving the solid state applets,
full-time; 3) jas5.eng.buffalo.edu is a back-up server in
case the first two are down or inaccessible.
- March 1999: Next applet to be on-line is the Current components moving
in and out of the base region of a BJT as the bias at the two junctions
- March 1999: Our recent analysis of the web access data showed that
the most frequently accessing clients are U.C. Berkeley and Stanford for
University users, and Texas Instrument, Samsung and Motorola for Industry
users. The applet web pages were accessed at about 1,000 pages a day.
- March 1999: The applet template design has changed a bit. This makes
the pop-up window of the text pages a trimmed-down window.
- March 1999: A Bipolar transistor
applet is now on line. It shows a minority carrier concentration profile
in the base region, the slope of carrier concentration at the emitter and
collector junctions and the related current densities where the base width
is a user-controlled parameter. The key concept to learn is how many of
the carriers injected at the Emitter junction are collected at collector
junction as controlled by the relative sizes of the base width and the
minority carrier diffusion length in the base.
- February 1999: A collaborative Center with focus on developing tools
for educational renovation is launched -- Center
for Active Learning of Microelectronics and Photonics (CAMP). Visit
