An interactive web based teaching tool for a power semiconductor course at the University of Central Florida is presented in this paper A novel approach 1, introduced using Technology Aided Design Tools (TCAD) to generate time-lapsed 2D semiconductor device cross section embedded in a webpage using Adobe (R) Flash (web design tool) platform to create interactive movies that demonstrate complex devil e physical phenomenon Students can step through the interactive movies forward backward pausing or looping Each step represents a giving bias condition Current-voltage plots are represented along with the semiconductor device and a visual point is placed on the IV curve to indicate the current bias conditions The changes are then reflected in the 2D cross section movie area and the IV plot This tool was Implemented in a classroom setting to augment the lectures or for discovery learning
