Abstract
In this study, the potential of forward conduction loss reduction of Bipolar-Injection Field-Effect-Transistors (SiC-p-BIFET) with an intended blocking voltage of 10kV by adjusting the doping concentration in the channel-region is analyzed. For the optimization of the SiC-p-BIFET, numerical simulations were carried out. Regarding a desired turn-off voltage of approximately 25V, the optimum doping concentration in the channel-region was found to be 1.4x1017cm-3. Based on these results, SiC-p-BIFETs were fabricated and electrically characterized in the temperature range from 25°C up to 175°C. In this study, the differential on-resistance was found to be 110mΩcm2 for a temperature of 25°C and 55mΩcm2 for a temperature of 175°C. In comparison to our former results, a reduction of the differential on-resistance of about 310mΩcm2 at room temperature is demonstrated.
