Power semiconductor devices in the modern era of electrification

Prof. Florin Udrea Cambridge University, UK Abstract The power devices field has seen tremendous changes in the last decade. The traditional power MOSFET has been largely replaced by a new class of power devices based on the Silicon Superjunction concept, while the Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs) are now fabricated on 12 inch wafers and… Read more

SiC device manufacturing using ion implantation: Opportunities and challenges

  Dr. Tobias Erlbacher Fraunhofer Institute of Integrated Systems and Device Technology IISB, Erlangen, Germany Abstract Manufacturing of vertical power transistors utilizes doping by ion implantation. However, in contrast to silicon, SiC manufacturing technology is still maturing. This presentation will highlight the challenges of doping SiC by ion implantation: Besides activation at higher temperatures than in… Read more

Radiation hardness and accelerated testing of electronics

Reliability needs for electronics is steadily increasing and radiation is one important source for failures in electronic systems, both in space and in terrestrial environments. The workshop will address this issue and present methods to test electronics for radiation hardness and also highlight the introduction of wide bandgap semiconductors, which are inherently more radiation hard… Read more
