Measurement and Analysis of SiC-MOSFET threshold voltage shift

2018-10-04T13:19:11+01:00October 4th, 2018|Conference, Power Electronics & Converters|

Gate-oxide technology weakness is a main reliability issue of Silicon Carbide MOSFET transistors. The threshold voltage shift is a critical phenomenon that addresses the reliability of industrial power applications. It is important to have a better understanding of the phenomena implied in the gate threshold voltage shift. In this context, HTGB test is proposed and the resulting gate oxide stress is studied and discussed in this paper.
