Title: Unusual Bias Temperature Instability in SiC DMOSFET
Published: March 03, 2014
Abstract: We observe an unusual instability in the SiC DMOSFET transistor characteristics. From a series of bias conditions at elevated temperatures, we conclude that a high density of hole traps in the oxide near the SiO2/SiC interface are responsible.
