SiC MOSFET Channel Mobility Dependence on Substrate Doping and Temperature Considering High Density of Interface Traps
In prior work we have proposed a mobility model for describing the mobility degradation observed in SiC MOSFET devices, suitable for being implemented into a commercial simulator, including Coulomb scattering effects at interface traps. In this paper, the effect of temperature and doping on the channel mobility has been modelled. The computation results suggest that the Coulomb scattering at charged interface traps is the dominant degradation mechanism. Simulations also show that a temperature increase implies an improvement in field-effect mobility since the inversion channel concentration increases and the trapped charge is reduced due to bandgap narrowing. In contrast, increasing the substrate impurity concentration further degrades the fieldeffect mobility since the inversion charge concentration decreases for a given gate bias. We have good agreement between the computational results and experimental mobility measurements.
