The important word semiconductor is composition of two words-Semi and Conductor. Semi means not completely while the conductor word means something, which can conduct electricity. Everybody knows what “Electricity” is. It is present everywhere; many appliances in your home and outside the home like TV, Bulb, Freeze, and Microwave Oven etc. are based on electricity. In simple terms, the current must pass through wires so that the electricity can reach up to these appliances.

Online Semiconductors and Elecronic Circuits Training

The important word semiconductor is composition of two words-Semi and Conductor. Semi means not completely while the conductor word means something, which can conduct electricity. Everybody knows what “Electricity” is. It is present everywhere; many appliances in your home and outside the home like TV, Bulb, Freeze, and Microwave Oven etc. are based on electricity. In simple terms, the current must pass through wires so that the electricity can reach up to these appliances.

So a conductor is a material having ability to conduct this electricity. Semiconductors conduct electricity to some extent, less than the conductors, how much do you think? Well, it depends on the type of material or its mixture and size. A semiconductor is a material that has intermediate conductivity between a conductor and an insulator. It means that it has unique physical properties somewhere in between a conductor like aluminum and an insulator like glass. There’s a process called doping, small amounts of impurities are added to pure semiconductors which effected in large changes in the conductivity of the material. Example which include silicon, the basic common material used in the integrated circuit and germanium, the semiconductor used for the first transistors. Semiconductors are used heavily in electronic circuits. As its name states, a semiconductor is a material that conducts current, but only partially. The level of conductivity of a semiconductor is somewhere between an insulator, which has almost zero level conductivity, and a conductor, which has almost full level of conductivity. Most semiconductors are crystals made of some materials, most commonly silicon. To understand how semiconductors work, you must first understand a little about how electrons are organized in an atom. The electrons present in an atom are organized in layers. These layers are called shells. The outermost shell is called valence shell. The electrons in this shell form bonds with neighboring atoms. Such bonds are called as covalent bonds. Most conductors have only one electron in the valence shell and Semiconductors, on the other hand, typically have four electrons in their valence shell. If all the neighboring atoms are of the same type, it’s possible for all the valence electrons to bind with other valence electrons from other atoms. When that happens, the atoms arrange themselves into a structure which is called crystals. Semiconductors are made up of such crystals, which are usually silicon crystals.

Who is this course for?

This course is for those who want to get into Electronics Company, so there is needed a lot of interest in this topic.
Semiconductors and integrated circuit manufacturing companies
Students graduating in technical streams like electronics engineering
Engineering students can opt this course in 1st year students are taught basic about the circuits and semiconductor related articles.
Electronics and electronics with telecommunication can take up this course for sure.
Professionals from Semiconductor Industry can go for this course as it has taught all the calculations which are done in industry level.
All electronics student go in IT industry so Electronics Company wants electronics students to work in their field.
Actually beginners can even take this course as teaching is from base level so there will be no difficulty for starters.

Requirements

A computer with internet is needed as online learning will be there. Don’t skip any video as all are interconnected and if gets missed then further part will be difficult to understand.
The course starts from very basic level; so most of engineering students will enjoy learning as everything will be explained.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
