The performance of a high-voltage lateral insulated gate bipolar transistor (LIGBTs) with segmented n+p/n anode fabricated in junction isolation technology is experimentally investigated at both room and elevated temperatures. Detailed two dimensional numerical modeling of a vertical representation of the structure shows that significant electron current passes through the n/sup +/p/n segment of the anode region during the on-state and when devices are subjected to clamped inductive switching… CONTINUE READING
