Abstract

In this paper we introduced the shielding layer concept in order to alleviate the electric field of concentrated on the trench bottom corner. The shielded trench gate IGBT is a trench gate IGBT with a P+ Shielding layer bottom of a trench gate. By simulation results, we verified that a shielding layer reduced the electric fields not only in the gate oxide but in the p-base region. Compared with conventional trench gate IGBT, about 33% increment of forward breakdown voltages are achieved.
