**Assigned Reading in Murdocca & Heuring:** A.4-A.7

**Assigned Reading in Neveln:**

**Assigned:** hw3

**Due:**

**Topics Covered:**

- Slides are available in PDF: Slides16.pdf
- Postulates and theorems of Boolean Algebra. Simplifying the formula for MAJ3.
- How to make transistors from semiconductors. We followed some web
pages for this. Here are the links:
- A relay as an example of an electronic switch
- The periodic table of elements
- Intrinsic semiconductors
- The doping of semiconductors
- The P-N junction
- Forward and reverse biased P-N junctions
- The field-effect transistor
- Inversion channel and threshold voltage (This was the Java applet that let's you control the voltage at the gate of a MOSFET transistor and see how it affects the current through the other two terminals.)

- Using MOSFET to construct CMOS logic NOT, NAND and NOR gates.
- Discussed Homework 3.
