Sumitomo Electric develops SiC power transistor  [ Japan ]

Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. has developed a new power transistor it calls "V-groove metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor (VMOSFET)." The transistor is made of silicon carbide (SiC) and has a proprietary structure. It has low on-state resistance characteristics because it utilizes a special plane orientation (0-33-8) for the channel that turns the electron flow on and off so ...
