Description

The WHiTe (Wood High-Temperature) JFET (junction field-effect transistor) compact model has been developed to aid in the design of 4H SiC (silicon carbide) ICs (integrated circuits) for hostile environments. Key features include:

  • bilateral channel modulation by independent dissimilar gates;
  • field-dependent channel mobility;
  • voltage-dependent output conductance in channel saturation;
  • an extensive operating temperature range;
  • innate support for extrinsic channel series resistance; and
  • an intuitive and coherent set of physical and empirical parameters.

A process-compatible resistor compact model has been concurrently developed.
