Current collapse at high drain voltage in a GaN-based transistor is successfully suppressed by the introduction of p-GaN region which is placed beside the drain of a Gate Injection Transistor (GIT). The additional p-GaN region enables hole injection which effectively releases trapped electrons at around drain region after the application of high drain voltages. The p-GaN region is electrically connected to the drain electrode so that this is named as Hybrid Drain-embedded GIT (HD-GIT). The… CONTINUE READING
