The development of vertical power MOSFETs has made it possible for MOS and bipolar functions to be combined advantageously. The SIPMOS (Siemens Power MOS) technique is eminently suitable for this
Insulated-gate planar thyristors: II—Quantitative modeling
The basic modes of operation of a new planar, high-voltage thyristor which is controlled by an insulated gate are described in Part I. This paper presents models for the dc operation of the device.
10/spl Omega/ 370 V high voltage switches for line circuit application

Turn-off failures in individual and paralleled MCT's
A turn-off failure mode in individual MOS-controlled thyristors (MCTs), initiated by a long gate voltage rise-time, is identified and analyzed. It is shown to be caused by turn-off current crowding
Analysis of n-channel MOS-controlled thyristors
The turn-off of the n-channel MOS-controlled thyristor (NMCT) is analyzed using two-dimensional simulation. A lateral NMOS-controlled thyristor structure, LNMCT, suitable for HVIC application is also

An integral charge control model of bipolar transistors
TLDR
A compact model of bipolar transistors suitable for network analysis computer programs is presented, through the use of a new charge control relation linking junction voltages, collector current, and base charge, which substantially exceeds that of existing models of comparable complexity.
A monolithic 200-V CMOS analog switch
A new high-voltage CMOS technology is described which can increase the operating voltage of these circuits to more than 200 V. This represents approximately an order of magnitude improvement over

TLDR
Comparison of experimental and theoretical results shows that the model accurately predicts the device I/V characteristics, but the range of validity of the model is limited primarily by high current saturation effects.
