Abstract: Superjunction concept had been proposed to overcome ideal silicon MOSFET limit, but its fabrication was handicapped by the precise charge balance requirement and inter-diffusion problem. We report a novel device structure termed oxide-bypassed VDMOS (OBVDMOS) that requires the well-established oxide thickness control instead of the difficult doping control in translating the limit to a higher blocking voltage. This is done by using metal-thick-oxide (MTO) at the sidewalls of drift region. One can choose to have a higher blocking voltage or increase the background doping. A PiN structure, essentially identical to MOSFET during off state, was fabricated to demonstrate the proposed concept. Its measured BV dss of 170 V is 2.5 times higher than measured conventional device BV dss of 67 V on the same silicon wafer.
