Cryogenic operation of silicon power devices.

Author(s) : SINGH R., BALIGA B. J.

Type of monograph: Book


This book is part of the Power Electronics and Power Systems Series. It presents the different characteristics of silicon power devices operated below -55 °C (220 K). It provides data and physics based models for power devices operated at temperatures down to 77 K for the first time within a single source. All commercially available devices have been included to provide comprehensive coverage. Also, a fundamental analysis of devices identifies the suitability of various devices to applications requiring cryogenic operations. A quantitative analysis of the relative strengths and weaknesses of these devices is also presented.
