A simple one-dimensional (1-D) analytical solution method for analyzing and determining the breakdown properties of reduced surface field (RESURF) lateral devices is presented. The solution demonstrates quantitatively and qualitatively the reshaping and reduction of the electric field and its dependence on the device/process key parameters. The solution is based on a simple and physical charge-sharing approach that takes into account the modulation of the lateral depletion layer spreading… CONTINUE READING
