This item from - IEEE Conference - 2014 IEEE 26th International Symposium on Power Semiconductor Devices & IC's (ISPSD) - In this paper we introduce a new GCT design, namely the Stripe Fortified GCT, for the purpose of maximizing the controllable current by optimizing the current flow path in the device during turn-off. The main design of the new device along with variants are introduced. The MCC performance of this novel structure is assessed with a developed two dimensional model for full wafer simulations. Our results show that this new design is a very good candidate for increasing the MCC to values more than 5000A.
