GaO beats SiC in channel mobility

Startup company Flosfia has reported that its gallium-oxide power semiconductor can outperform the characteristics of silicon-carbide, but in a normally-off configuration. Flosfia Ltd. (Tokyo, Japan), founded in 2011, is a pioneer of the use of corundum-structured gallium oxide...

Designing in MOSFETs for safe and reliable gate-drive operation

The MOSFET gate-source threshold voltage (VGS-th) and maximum gate-source voltage(VGS-max) are key parameters that are critical to the reliable operation of MOSFETs. The threshold voltage represents the voltage at which the MOSFET starts to turn on, whilst the maximum gate-source...
