The diffusion limit of the initial-boundary value problem for the Boltzmann-Poisson system is studied in one dimension. By carefully analyzing entropy production terms due to the boundary, $L^p$ estimates are established for the solution of the scaled Boltzmann equation (coupled to Poisson) with well prepared initial and boundary conditions. A hybrid Hilbert expansion taking advantage of the regularity of the limiting system allows to prove the convergence of the solution towards the solution of the Drift-Diffusion-Poisson system and to exhibit a convergence rate.
