The development of compact silicon carbide (SiC) power semiconductor device models for circuit simulation is described. The work detailed herein has been used to model power Schottky, Merged-PiN-Schottky, PiN diode, and MOSFET models. In these models, the static and dynamic performance of the power SiC devices requires specific attention to the low-doped, voltage blocking drift region; the relatively low channel transconductance in MOS devices; the injection efficiency of p-n junctions; the relatively low intrinsic carrier concentration; the incomplete ionization of dopants; and the temperature dependent material properties. The modeling techniques required to account for each of these characteristics is described in this work.
