3.5 Wide-bandgap devices

Description

March 26, 2021
In this lecture, we will learn:
  • The bandgap of a material is directly related to its breakdown field.
  • With a higher breakdown field, a given voltage can be applied over a shorter distance.
  • Smaller devices (with high breakdown voltages) can have improved resistance and capacitance.
