A comprehensive and state-of-the-art resource for the design and fabrication of IGBT
Semiconductor devices, particularly the insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT), form the heart of the power electronics industry and play a pivotal role in the regulation and distribution of energy in the world. Since its conception as a switching device, improvements and innovative design ideas have established IGBT as a rugged contender in the competitive electronics field.
Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBT): Theory and Design covers basic theory and design aspects of IGBTs, including the selection of silicon, achieving targeted specifications through device and process design, and device packaging. After laying the groundwork in MOS and bipolar disciplines, the author constructs the foundation of power device physics necessary for clearly understanding the subject matter, including chapters on:
- Non-punchthrough, punchthrough, vertical double diffused MOSFET and trench-gate IGBTs; improved lateral and novel IGBT structures; and emerging technologies
- Steady-state and dynamic operation, and soft switching performance; safe operating area and reliability tests of IGBT
- IGBT physics, device and circuit models
- IGBT unit cell design and latching suppression techniques
- IGBT fabrication steps and process design
- IGBT power modules
Unique in focusing on IGBT in its entirety, this book will be an invaluable resource for engineering students and professionals alike.
Semiconductor devices form the heart of the power electronics industry and play a pivotal role in the regulation and distribution of energy in the world.
