    The current approach to teaching MOS circuit design is based on the classic square-law MOSFET device model. This model is capable of adequately modeling long-channel devices; however, current levels of technology are providing short-channel MOS devices which exhibit significant second-order effects which cannot be accounted for by the square-law model. Due to inherent increases in model complexity... View full abstract»

    Cal Tech offers a two-term class in solid-state devices and integrated circuits to about 100 students each year. In the Fall, the students attend 20 lectures that cover both the background material incuits, solid-state physics and electric fields, and a detailed description of diodes, MOS transistors, and inverters. In addition, there are two laboratory exercises in which the students make a light... View full abstract»

    Laboratory confirmation of theoretical results is important for student confidence in both analytical and experimental techniques. A frequent source of difficulty in obtaining such a confirmation is the improper handling of error-corrupted measurements. This paper discusses measurement simulation and least squares parameter estimation as applied in a dc servomotor laboratory. Simulation illustrate... View full abstract»

    One of the most professionally rewarding interactions for an experienced engineer is the coaching and counseling of undergraduate engineering students. All too often, however, the practicing engineer may not be able to find the time or managerial support for this kind of interaction, and an important learning experience for both industry and the students lies unexplored. This paper presents a case... View full abstract»
