Title
(EN) WIDE BANDGAP TRANSISTORS WITH GATE-SOURCE FIELD PLATES
(FR) TRANSISTORS A LARGE BANDE INTERDITE A PLAQUES DE CHAMP SOURCE-GRILLE
Abstract
(EN)
A transistor comprising an active region having a channel layer, with source and drain electrodes formed in contact with the active region and a gate formed between the source and drain electrodes and in contact with the active region. A spacer layer is on at least part of the surface of the plurality of active region between the gate and the drain electrode and between the gate and the source electrode. A field plate is on the spacer layer and extends on the spacer and over the active region toward the drain electrode. The field plate also extends on the spacer layer over the active region and toward the source electrode. At least one conductive path electrically connects the field plate to the source electrode or the gate.

La présente invention a trait à un transistor comportant une région active présentant une couche de canal, avec des électrodes de source et de drain formées en contact avec la région active et une grille formée entre les électrodes de source et de drain et en contact avec la région active. Une couche d'entretoise se trouve sur au moins une partie de la surface de la pluralité de région active entre la grille et l'électrode de drain et entre la grille et l'électrode de source. Une plaque de champ se trouve sur la couche d'entretoise et s'étend sur l'entretoise et sur la région active vers l'électrode de source. Au moins un chemin conducteur assure la liaison électrique entre la plaque de champ et l'électrode de source ou la grille.
