The Long-Channel MOS Transistor – Part 1

This is the first module we are dealing with the complete transistor; much of this material, as well as next module's material, will form the core of what we will be covering in the rest of the course. We hope you will spend extra time studying to make sure you understand this material in depth. The total viewing time in each of these two modules is shorter, which should help. ...
