Title (EN) SIC TRANSIENT VOLTAGE SUPPRESSOR
(FR) SUPPRESSEUR DE TENSION TRANSITOIRE SUR SIC
Abstract:
(EN) A high power, high current Unidirectional Transient Voltage Suppressor, formed on SiC starting material is disclosed. The device is structured to avalanche uniformly across the entire central part (active area) such that very high currents can flow while the device is reversely biased. Forcing the device to avalanche uniformly across designated areas is achieved in different ways but consistently in concept, by creating high electric fields where the device is supposed to avalanche (namely the active area) and by relaxing the electric field across the edge of the structure (namely in the termination), which in all embodiments meets the conditions for an increased reliability under harsh environments.
(FR) L'invention concerne un suppresseur de tension transitoire unidirectionnel haute puissance et haute intensité, formé sur un matériau de départ en SiC. Le dispositif est structuré de façon à réaliser un effet d'avalanche uniformément sur toute la partie centrale (zone active) de sorte que des courants très puissants puissent circuler lorsque le dispositif est inversé en polarisation. On amène de différentes manières le dispositif à réaliser un effet d'avalanche uniformément sur des zones désignées, mais de façon cohérente en théorie, par la création de champs électriques puissants où le dispositif est supposé réaliser l'effet d'avalanche (à savoir, la zone active) et par la relaxation du champ électrique sur le bord de la structure (à savoir, dans la terminaison), ce qui, dans tous les modes de réalisation, satisfait aux conditions pour une augmentation de la fiabilité dans des conditions environnementales extrêmes.
