Paper Title:
Normally-Off 1400V/30A 4H-SiC DACFET and its Application to DC-DC Converter
  Abstract

Large (3.6 x 3.6 mm2) chips of the SiC DACFET were fabricated and mounted in TO220 packages. The drain-source avalanche breakdown voltage without any gate bias (Vgs=0V) is measured to be >1400V. The SiC DACFET keeps the normally-off characteristics even at 150°C. Ron and specific Ron of the SiC DACFET is measured to be 62mΩ and 6.7 mΩcm2 at RT while those at 150°C change to 107 mΩ and 11.6 mΩcm2. The 400V / 3 kW DC-DC switched-mode power-conversion circuit with 100kHz switching was fabricated using the SiC DACFET and the SiC SBD. The turn-off switching loss reduces dramatically using the SiC-DACFET down to 77μJ/pulse which is less than 1/10 of that using the Si-IGBT.
