In this paper, we present a successful operation of Gallium Nitride(GaN)-based three-phase inverter with high efficiency of 99.3% for driving motor at 900W under the carrier frequency of 6kHz. This efficiency well exceeds the value by IGBT (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor). This demonstrates that GaN has a great potential for power switching application(More)
We propose a novel technique to boost the blocking voltage of AlGaN/GaN hetero junction field effect transistors (HFETs) by widening a depletion layer in highly resistive Si substrate. The blocking-voltage boosting (BVB) technology utilizes ion implantation at the peripheral area of the chip as channel stoppers to terminate the leakage current from the(More)
Recent advances in GaN power switching devices are reviewed. A new normall-off GaN transistor called Gate Injection Transistor (GIT) increases drain current by conductivity modulation. The GIT is fabricated on cost-effective Si substrates by novel MOCVD technology enabling crack-free and smooth surfaces over 6-inch wafer. These technologies with thermally(More)
In this paper, we present a novel GaN-based normally-off transistor with an integrated Si Schottky barrier diode (SBD) for low voltage DC-DC converters. The integrated SBD is formed by the Si substrate for the epitaxial growth of AlGaN/GaN hetero-structure, which is connected to the normally-off GaN Gate Injection Transistor (GIT) over it with via-holes.(More)
We present a novel GaN-based diode with low reverse leakage current which ensures the high voltage operation up to 600V. The diode consists of multi-junctions of AlGaN/GaN with a p-GaN overlayer where the anode and cathode are formed on the sidewalls of the channels. The tunneling current which is the origin of the leakage current can be reduced by(More)
We propose a novel concept of thin and compact CPV modules in which submillimeter solar cells are directly attached to lens arrays without secondary optics or an extra heat sink. With this small cell size, the optical path length of the module can be brought down to one-twentieth that of conventional CPV modules. To achieve precise alignment of the(More)
Ion implantation technique can be applied for planar isolation of AlGaN/GaN heterojunction field-effect transistors (HFETs), which enables high-density integration of the power switching transistors. So far, the reported isolation using ion implantation for GaN devices has never maintained high isolation voltages after high-temperature processing over 800(More)
Fast switching operation of power electronics systems is significantly advantageous for reducing volume of passive components and increasing power density in the systems. Next generation power devices, such as GaN gate-injection transistor (GIT), are promising for high frequency operations and isolated gate driving is also highly recommended owing to its(More)
We have demonstrated hysteresis-free recessed gate AlGaN/GaN metal-oxide-semiconductor heterojunction field-effect transistor (MOS-HFET) by implementing AIGN gate insulator and selective AlGaN regrowth technique. High thermal stability and excellent electrical properties of AIGN gate dielectrics will provide a large process window for further optimization(More)
