Abstract/Description:
A new revolutionary concept was presented two decades ago, known as (")semiconductor Superjunction (SJ) theory(") to enhance the trade-off relationship between speci?c on resistance, Rsp, and off-state breakdown voltage, BV, in medium to high voltages (more than 100 V) power MOSFETs. The SJ concept was ?rst applied and commercialized to vertical structures, but it hasn't been used yet in low voltage MOSFETs with lateral structures. This thesis provides a review of the most common structures, principles and design techniques for discrete power MOSFETs. It also presents a simulation study of the application of these SJ concepts in the design of a Low Voltage SJ LDMOS transistor, using TCAD software. To make the device commercially feasible, this device design targets aggressive goals such as an off-state Breakdown Voltage of 60V with Rspof 20 miliohms per milimiter square. This study includes the analysis of the ?ow process for the fabrication of this transistor, using semiconductor technologies, and the simulation results, including Breakdown Voltage, on-state resistance, electric ?eld distribution among others simulation analysis.
