Title (EN) POWER SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICES HAVING GATE TRENCHES WITH IMPLANTED SIDEWALLS AND RELATED METHODS
(FR) DISPOSITIFS À SEMI-CONDUCTEUR DE PUISSANCE AYANT DES TRANCHÉES DE GRILLE AVEC DES PAROIS LATÉRALES IMPLANTÉES ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract:
(EN) Semiconductor devices include a semiconductor layer structure having a wide band-gap semiconductor drift region having a first conductivity type. A gate trench is provided in an upper portion of the semiconductor layer structure, the gate trench having first and second opposed sidewalls that extend in a first direction in the upper portion of the semiconductor layer structure. These devices further include a deep shielding pattern having a second conductivity type that is opposite the first conductivity type in the semiconductor layer structure underneath a bottom surface of the gate trench, and a deep shielding connection pattern that has the second conductivity type in the first sidewall of the gate trench. The devices include a semiconductor channel region that has the first conductivity type in the second sidewall of the gate trench.
(FR) Les dispositifs à semi-conducteur comprennent une structure de couche semi-conductrice ayant une région de dérive de semi-conducteur à large bande interdite dotée d'un premier type de conductivité. Une tranchée de grille est ménagée dans une partie supérieure de la structure de couche semi-conductrice, la tranchée de grille ayant des première et seconde parois latérales opposées qui s'étendent dans une première direction dans la partie supérieure de la structure de couche semi-conductrice. Ces dispositifs comprennent en outre un motif de blindage profond doté d'un second type de conductivité qui est opposé au premier type de conductivité dans la structure de couche semi-conductrice sous une surface inférieure de la tranchée de grille, et un motif de connexion de blindage profond qui est doté du second type de conductivité dans la première paroi latérale de la tranchée de grille. Les dispositifs comprennent une région de canal semi-conducteur qui est dotée du premier type de conductivité dans la seconde paroi latérale de la tranchée de grille.
