Abstract :
The potential of SiC-based power switching devices has been well
recognized due to its superior materials properties relative to
silicon. These properties (which include approximately 10/spl
times/ higher breakdown voltage, 3/spl times/ higher band gap,
3/spl times/ higher thermal conductivity and 2/spl times/ higher
electron saturated velocity) have the potential to yield
significant size, weight and cost reductions as well as
efficiency improvements at the systems level for
commercial/military power utility and motor control applications.
We report here progress on asymmetrical GTOs fabricated in
4H-SiC. The asymmetrical structure is easier to turn-off and has
improved breakdown voltage capability compared to the symmetrical
structure. The devices fabricated in this study have forward
blocking voltage of 700 V in air even though the structures did
not have any advanced edge termination. A forward voltage drop of
4.8 V was measured at 350/spl deg/C for a current density of 500
A/cm/sup 2/. Four GTO cells were combined to switch 1.4 amps.
Storage times at turn-off were measured to be <100 ns at a
current density of 500 A/cm/sup 2/, corresponding to a turn-off
current gain of 1. In addition, 8 devices were combined in a
package yielding 5 amps, indicating that current hogging is not a
problem in these devices.
