Cryogenic Parametric Characterization of Gallium Nitride Switches

Abstract: This report presents the parametric characterization results of four GaN field-effect transistor (FET) devices from three manufacturers, one of which is a cascode device, and compares those results to a Si power metal-oxide-semiconductor fieldeffect transistor (MOSFET) and a SiC power MOSFET. The devices were first characterized at ambient temperature, then at cryogenic temperatures down to -196 C (LN2 temperature), and finally at ambient temperature again in the event that the device paramet…
