The Physics of Failure for the Key Intrinsic Failure Mechanisms in GaN-on-Si Power FETs Speaker: Alex Lidow, Ph.D., CEO and Co-Founder, Efficient Power Conversion

GaN-on-Si technology has been in mass production for 10 years and has gained a reputation for excellent reliability in the field. Behind this record of field reliability is a growing understanding of the physics of failure for commercial and automotive-certified devices. In this talk we will show recent results for hot carrier injection (HCI) and the virtual elimination of dynamic RDS(on), and time dependent dielectric breakdown rates in gate electrodes. Overall these two physical phenomena represent the main intrinsic failure mechanisms and have led to the practical predictions of device performance over long time periods under various high-stress conditions.
