The conduction losses of the power MOSFET of this era were primarily determined by the channel density, JFET resistance and epitaxial resistance (See Figure 1).
SITs are a class of transistors with a short channel JFET structure in which the current, flowing vertically between the source and drain, is controlled by the height of an electrostatically induced potential energy barrier under the source.
We are ramping with our customers' demands for our industry-leading SiC power JFET and power diode products, and this new expansion will allow us to expand our volume another 50% for these customers and new ones starting up with us.
MOSFET devices typically have higher flicker noise cutoff frequencies than JFET or BJT devices.
The use of a JFET as the amplifying element will prove beneficial for use in low phase noise oscillators due to its low flicker noise.
Figure 2 shows JFET input op amps such as Analog Devices AD8625/ AD8626/AD8627 and AD8641 /AD8642/ AD8643 that have input bias currents of less than 1 pA.
easy to use, fully automated measurement of transistor input, output and reverse transfer capacitances (Ciss, Coss and Crss, Cies, Coes, Cres) at high bias voltages, independent terminal capacitances (Cgs, Cgd, Cds, Cge, Cgc, Cce), and capacitances for normally-on devices, such as SiC JFET or GaN FET; internal gate resistance (Rg) measurement; continuous capacitance measurement as the gate voltage varies from negative to positive; support for a complete workflow of capacitance evaluation that includes the ability to easily and accurately switch back and forth between leakage current and capacitance measurements without having to do any recabling.
CE(on)] performance include enhanced accumulation-layer injection and elimination of the parasitic JFET resistance inherent in the planar IGBT structure.
With the SemiSouth SiC JFET and diode portfolio, we will be able to address the main power conversion and inversion circuits in those same applications by replacing silicon diodes, MOSFETS and IGBTs with higher-performance SiC technology.
The LED driver ICs have been designed to start up directly from the high-voltage (HV) supply by an internal JFET current source and incorporate all required protection features.
