All You Need To Know About Semiconductors Those electronic components which make use of or exploit the electronic characteristics of semiconductor materials such as silicon, germanium, gallium arsenide as well as organic semiconductors are termed as semiconductor Devices. Earlier thermionic devices (vacuum pipes) used to do what semiconductors do today. They use electronic conduction while it is in the solid state as contrasting to the gaseous state in thermionic emission. These devices are manufactured as both, single separate devices as well as Integrated Circuits (ICs), that entail from as low as two to billions of devices manufactured and connected on a distinct semiconductor substrate or wafer. There are four different types of semiconductors, which work for different purposes and each has a different tasks. Here we provide you with the afore-mentioned types of Semiconductors: 1. Diodes conduct electricity easily in one direction among all of their most common behavior. These diodes can come in great varieties such as schottky diodes, zender diodes, varactor, lightemitting diode etc. 2. Transistors are semiconductor devices use in amplifying and switching electronic signals and electronic power. 3. Optoelectronic Devices which use both electronic as well as electronic currents. Some common examples of which are: LED traffic lights etc.


4. Integrated Circuits (ICs) is a set of electronic circuits on one small flat piece of semiconductor material (termed as chip).

Benefits of Semiconductor Devices Plenty of brands of Semiconductor Devices have arisen in the last few years Texas Instruments is one such brand. And with the rise of brands has come up Supply Chain and hence wholesale distributors. The rise of these devices is few to the many benefits that they provide, some of which are provided here below: 1. Semiconductors do not possess filaments and therefore no power is required in order to heat them up to permit the emission of electrons. 2. Since there is no need for heating, semiconductor starts to work as soon as the circuit is switched on. 3. Such devices are without the humming noise during application. 4. These devices are shockproof.


5. Their shelf-life is unlimited 6. They have no vacuum deterioration trouble as no vacuum is created. 7. Compared to the Vacuum tubes, semiconductor devices are a lot cheaper. 8. Being physically small in sizes, the circuits that involve semiconductor devices are very compact. Manufacture of Semiconductors Manufacturing and supplying semiconductor needs both, expertise as well as experience. Thus a supplier of such products must have proper knowledge about them. Moreover, chemicals that are meant to be used need to be free from all impurities. The procedure of adding orderly amount of impurities I termed as ‘doping’. Semiconductor devices are manufactured following steps that are given below: 1. Designing or Mask Creation 2. Patterning 3. Wafer Fabrication 4. Device Insulation Layer Formation. 5. Transistor Formation 6. Metallization 7. Assembly and testing Semiconductor Industry-Global & USA It has been found through research that the present condition of the semiconductor industry comprises of a sum of 300 billion USD at


present and is expected to grow at a rate of 13-15 % annually. USA stands at the forefront of the industry.
