This letter reports on a fully integrated 2-linear voltage regulator operational in a wide temperature range from 25 °C up to 500 °C fabricated in 4H-SiC technology. The circuit provides a stable output voltage with less than 1% variation in the entire temperature range. This letter demonstrates the first power supply solution providing both high-temperature (up to 500 °C) and high-load driving capabilities (up to 2).

Abstract [en]

4H-SiC p-i-n photodiodes with various mesa areas (40,000μm2, 2500μm2, 1600μm2, and 400μm2) have been fabricated. Both C-V and I-V characteristics of the photodiodes have been measured at room temperature, 200 °C, 400 °C, and 500 °C. The capacitance and photo current (at 365 nm) of the photodiodes are directly proportional to the area. However, the dark current density increases as the device is scaled down due to the perimeter surface recombination effect. The photo to dark current ratio at the full depletion voltage of the intrinsic layer (-2.7 V) of the photodiode at 500 °C decreases 7 times as the size of the photodiode scales down 100 times. The static and dynamic behavior of the photodiodes are modeled with SPICE parameters at the four temperatures.

Abstract [en]

Implantation-free mesa etched 10+ kV 4H-SiC PiN diodes are fabricated, measured and analyzed by device simulation. An area-optimized junction termination extension (O-JTE) is implemented in order to achieve a high breakdown voltage. The diodes design allows a high breakdown voltage of about 19.3 kV according to simulations by Sentaurus TCAD. No breakdown voltage is recorded up to 10 kV with a very low leakage current of 0.1 μA. The current spreading within the thick drift layer is considered and a voltage drop (VF) of 8.3 V and 11.4 V are measured at 50 A/cm2 and 100 A/cm2, respectively. The differential on-resistance (Diff. Ron) of 67.7 mΩ.cm2 and 55.7 mΩ.cm2 are measured at 50 A/cm2 and 100 A/cm2, respectively.

Abstract [en]

An in-house fabricated 4H-SiC PIN diode that has both optical sensing and temperature sensing functions from room temperature (RT) to 550 ºC is presented. The two sensing functions can be simply converted from one to the other by switching the bias voltage on the diode. The optical responsivity of the diode at 365 nm is 31.8 mA/W at 550 ºC. The temperature sensitivity of the diode is 2.7 mV/ºC at the forward current of 1 μA.

Abstract [en]

High-current 4H-SiC lateral BJTs for hightemperature monolithic integrated circuits are fabricated. The BJTs have three different sizes and the designs are optimized in terms of emitter finger width and length and the device layout to have higher current density (J(C)), lower on-resistance (R-ON), and more uniform current distribution. A maximum current gain (beta) of >53 at significantly high current density was achieved for different sizes of SiC BJTs. The BJTs aremeasured fromroom temperature to 500 degrees C. An open-base breakdown voltage (V-CEO) of > 50 V is measured for the devices.

Abstract [en]

A self-aligned Nickel (Ni) silicide process (Salicide) for n-type ohmic contacts on 4H-SiC is demonstrated and electrically verified in a wafer-scale device process. The key point is to anneal the contacts in two steps. The process is successfully employed on wafer-level and a contact resistivity below 5 × 10−6 Ω · cm2 is achieved. The influence of the proposed process on the oxide quality is investigated and no significant effect is observed. The proposed self-aligned technology eliminates the undesirable effects of the lift-off process. Moreover, it is simple, fast, and manufacturable at wafer-scale which saves time and cost.

Abstract [en]

4H-SiC electronics can operate at high temperature (HT), e.g., 300A degrees C to 500A degrees C, for extended times. Systems using sensors and amplifiers that operate at HT would benefit from microcontrollers which can also operate at HT. Microcontrollers require nonvolatile memory (NVM) for computer programs. In this work, we demonstrate the possibility of integrating ferroelectric vanadium-doped bismuth titanate (BiTV) thin films on 4H-SiC for HT memory applications, with BiTV ferroelectric capacitors providing memory functionality. Film deposition was achieved by laser ablation on Pt (111)/TiO2/4H-SiC substrates, with magnetron-sputtered Pt used as bottom electrode and thermally evaporated Au as upper contacts. Film characterization by x-ray diffraction analysis revealed predominately (117) orientation. P-E hysteresis loops measured at room temperature showed maximum 2P (r) of 48 mu C/cm(2), large enough for wide read margins. P-E loops were measurable up to 450A degrees C, with losses limiting measurements above 450A degrees C. The phase-transition temperature was determined to be about 660A degrees C from the discontinuity in dielectric permittivity, close to what is achieved for ceramics. These BiTV ferroelectric capacitors demonstrate potential for use in HT NVM applications for SiC digital electronics.
