    Presentation Transcript
    1. Transistors for high power applications • LECTURE 23 • amplification and switched power supplies • avalanche breakdown • Kirk effect • GaAs HBT • Si L-DMOSFET • Si IGBT

    2. Some examples Cell-phone base stations e.g., VoxTechnologies Switched-mode power supplies e.g., NXP

    3. Operational requirements • High power delivery means high IDVDS or ICVCE • High current necessitates large area to avoid meltdown • High voltage necessitates high breakdown voltage to avoid avalanche breakdown

    4. Sec. 16.1 Avalanche breakdown

    5. Sec. 16.1 Design for high avalanche breakdown Consider an HBT x Use the triangular E-x profile to get an expression for VJ Should Nepi be low or high to get a high Vbr ?

    6. Breakdown strength of semiconductors Sec. 16.1

    7. Base push-out: the Kirk Effect Sec. 16.1 • High current means high |qn|. • What are the implications of this for making the Depletion Approximation? • How must Poisson’s equation be modified? • Why does this have an adverse effect on fT ? Roenker et al., Semicond. Sci. Techn., 19, 1131-37, 2004

    8. GaAs HBT for high-power ampifier Sec. 16.3.1 What 5 features of this transistor make it suitable for high-power amplification?

    9. Switched-mode power supply Sec. 16.4 Why are MOSFETs preferred for this application? What are the body and drain doping densities in high-performance MOSFETs? How can breakdown be avoided at the body/D junction?

    10. Si L-D MOSFET Sec. 16.4.1 How does this device achieve a high Vbr and a low ON resistance? http://www.nxp.com/acrobat_download2/literature/9397/75016655.pdf

    11. Lateral IGBT Sec. 16.4.2 • LIGBT, LDMOSFET: • what’s the difference • physically, • electrically?

    12. Lateral IGBT Sec. 16.4.2 OFF STATE, VGK < VT If VAK > 0, JI in RB depletion region can reach through to n buffer, i.e., high FBV. If VAK < 0, J3 in RB, and this determines RBV

    13. Lateral IGBT Sec. 16.4.2 ON STATE, VGK > VT , electrons injected into base and n-epi potential lowered. If VAK > 0, J3 in FB, holes injected into base and are collected by K i.e., bipolar action with MOSFET emitter. What’s the advantage to having a MOS “input”? Is this device fast?

    14. IGBT circuit and I-V J3 OFF ON

    15. High current Sec. 16.4.2
