Automated Parameter Extraction Software For High-Voltage, High-Frequency SiC Power MOSFETs



Tam H. Duong, Allen R. Hefner Jr., David W. Berning


Previously developed IMPACT software tools are extended to include the material parameters and device structures of SiC power devices. These software tools extract the data necessary establish a library of SiC power device component models and provide a method for quantitatively comparing different device types and establishing performance metrics for device development. The SiC--IMPACT parameter extraction sequence is demonstrated using several 10 kV SiC power MOSFET device design types and the results are compared with results for 2-kV SiC Power MOSFETs and for commercial Silicon Power MOSFETs with voltage blocking capabilities of 55 V, 400 V, and 1 kV.
