Silicon Carbide Emitter Turn-Off Thyristor
Beginning in the 1990s, continued improvements in SiC single-crystal wafers have resulted in significant progress toward the development of low-defect, thick-epitaxial SiC materials, and high-voltage SiC devices [2, 3], including the development of a 7-kV gate turn-off (GTO) thyristor , 10-kV SiC MOSFETs , and 13-kV insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) .
Suppliers of gallium nitride (GaN) and silicon carbide (SiC) power devices are rolling out the next wave of products with some new and impressive specs. But before these devices are incorporated in systems, they must prove to be reliable.
2020/8/13· 5.2 Silicon Nanowire MOSFETs The approach of Chapter 3 can be used to establish some general features of semiconductor nanowire MOSFETs. We assume a very simple geometry as shown in Fig. 5.1 - a nanowire that is coaxially gated. Instead of C ins = K ins? 0 / t ins F/cm 2 as for a MOSFET, we have an insulator capacitance of
