To improve the latch-up and forward voltage drop properties of the silicon-on-insulator (SOI) lateral insulated-gate bipolar transistor (LIGBT), a new SOI LIGBT structure is proposed and fabricated. The new device employs a dual-channel structure in order to enable more electrons to flow into the n-drift layer and to improve the latch-up characteristic.
