213 W 500 Mhz 4H-SiC Static Induction Transistor
. Silicon carbide (SiC) SITs were fabricated using home-grown epi structures. The gate is a recessed gate - bottom contact (RG - B). We designed that the mesa space 2.7μm and the gate channel is 1.2μm. One cell has 400 source fingers and each source finger width is 100μm. 1mm SiC SIT yielded a current density of 123mA/mm of drain current at a drain voltage of 20V. A maximum current density of 150 mA/mm was achieved with Vd=40V. The device blocking voltage with a gate bias of-16 V was 200 V. Packaged 24-cm devices were evaluated using amplifier circuits designed for class AB operations. A total power output in excess of 213 W was obtained with a power density of 8.5 W/cm and gain of 8.5 dB at 500 MHz under pulse operation.
