Abstract
(DE)
Beschrieben wird eine Leistungstransistoranordnung mit einer Kaskoden-Reihenschaltung eines Standard-MOSFET und eines JFET, wobei die Bodyzonen des MOSFET und die Kanalregion des JFET so ausgelegt sind, daß bei Anlegen einer Spannung in Vorwärtsrichtung, die kleiner ist als die erlaubte Drainspannung des MOSFET, die Kanalzone in der Kanalregion des JFET abgeschnürt ist.
(EN)
The invention relates to a power transistor arrangement comprising a cascode series connection of a standard MOSFET and of a JFET, whereby the body zones of the MOSFET, and the channel region of the JFET are configured in such a way that the channel zone is cut-off in the channel region of the JFET when a voltage that is smaller than the permitted drain voltage of the MOSFET is applied in a forward direction.
(FR)
Cette invention concerne un ensemble transistor de puissance constitué par un montage en série cascode d'un MOSFET standard et d'un JFET. Les zones actives du MOSFET et la région du canal du JFET sont disposées de sorte que la zone de canal de la région de canal se trouve bloquée lorsque l'on applique une tension dans le sens passant, inférieure à la tension de drain admissible du MOSFET.
