Continuous Compact Model of a SiC VDMOSFET Based on Surface Potential Theory


Article Preview

Fast and accurate compact models of Silicon Carbide (SiC) power semiconductors are necessary for the development and optimization of SiC power integrated circuits. This paper presents a new physics based compact model for vertical SiC MOSFETs. The proposed model is able to accurately simulate device characteristics by iteratively calculating the surface potential under consideration of important material and geometry effects.
