A metal insulator semiconductor field effect transistor (MISFET) such as a super junction metal oxide semiconductor FET with high voltage breakdown is realized by, in essence, stacking a relatively low aspect ratio column (trenches filled with dopant, e.g., p-type dopant) on top of a volume or volumes formed by implanting the dopant in lower layers. Together, the low aspect ratio column and the volume(s) form a continuous high aspect ratio column.


A laterally diffused metal oxide semiconductor (LDMOS) transistor structure with improved undamped inductive switching immunity. The LDMOS includes a substrate and an adjacent epitaxial layer both of a first conductivity type. A gate structure is above the epitaxial layer. A drain region and a source region, both of a second conductivity type, are within the epitaxial layer. A channel is formed between the source and drain region and arranged below the gate structure. A body structure of the first conductivity type is at least partially formed under the gate structure and extends laterally under the source region, wherein the epitaxial layer is less doped than the body structure. A conductive trench-like feed-through element passes through the epitaxial layer and contacts the substrate and the source region. The LDMOS includes a tub region of the first conductivity type formed under the source region, and adjacent laterally to and in contact with said body structure and said trench-like feed-through element.

Vertical sense devices in vertical trench MOSFET. In accordance with an embodiment of the present invention, an electronic circuit includes a vertical trench metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor configured for switching currents of at least one amp and a current sensing field effect transistor configured to provide an indication of drain to source current of the MOSFET. A current sense ratio of the current sensing FET is at least 15 thousand and may be greater than 29 thousand.


Edge termination for super-junction MOSFETs. In accordance with an embodiment of the present invention, a super-junction metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) includes a core super-junction region including a plurality of parallel core plates coupled to a source terminal of the super-junction MOSFET. The super-junction MOSFET also includes a termination region surrounding the core super-junction region comprising a plurality of separated floating termination segments configured to force breakdown into the core super-junction region and not in the termination region. Each termination segment has a length dimension less than a length dimension of the core plates.


An electrical device comprising a ribbed molded body housing an electrical component is provided. The ribbed molded body includes at least one surface or portion having a plurality of ribs along at least a portion of the surface. The electrical component may be a passive or active electrical component. The electrical component may be connected to a lead frame and molded into the ribbed molded body.


During fabrication, a second oxide layer is disposed over a first region and a second region of a structure. The second region includes a first oxide layer between the second oxide layer and an epitaxial layer. The first region corresponds to an active region of a metal-insulator-semiconductor field effect transistor (MISFET), and a first-type dopant source region, a second-type dopant body region, and a second-type dopant implant region are formed in the first region. The second region corresponds to a termination region of the MISFET. A mask is formed over the second region, and parts of the second oxide layer and the first oxide layer that are exposed through the gaps are removed, thereby exposing the epitaxial layer. Second-type dopant is deposited into the epitaxial layer through the resultant openings in the first and second oxide layers, thereby forming field rings for the MISFET.

Magnetic components and a method for making them are described. A conducting material may be cut using a high power laser such as, but not limited to, a rare-earth fiber laser such as a Ytterbium fiber laser. Alternatively, a conducting material may be cut using an abrasive water jet. The magnetic components may be planar.

A semiconductor device - e.g., a super junction power MOSFET - includes a number of columns of one type of dopant formed in a region of another type of dopant. Generally speaking, the columns are modulated in some manner. For example, the widths (e.g., diameters) of some columns are greater than the widths of other columns.
