State-of-the-art device technologies of GaN power switching transistors are reviewed. The presented technologies solve the technical issues on GaN transistors for practical use replacing currently used Si-based power devices. Thick epitaxial growth over 6-inch Si substrates enables low cost fabrication of GaN devices with high breakdown voltages. A new operating principle for the normally-off GaN transistor called Gate Injection Transistor (GIT) is proposed in which hole injection from the p… CONTINUE READING
