Welcome to the Institute for Nano- and Microelectronic Systems

The Institute for Nano and Microelectronic Systems (INES) focuses on research and teaching in analog, digital and mixed-signal circuit technology in CMOS and CMOS-compatible technologies, component and processing simulation as well as the areas of testing and reliability of electronic components and circuits.

New lecture in the summer semester

"Energy-Efficient Power-Semiconductor Architectures and Technology"

The lecture is presented by Dr. med. sc. nat. Holger Bartolf (Automotive Electronics, Robert Bosch GmbH) will take place for the first time in the summer semester 2019 on Mondays, 8:00 am - 9:30 am at Pfaffenwaldring 47, room V47.06.
 
Requirements

Sufficient knowledge for the lectures (B. Sc.): Microelectronics, semiconductor technology

Learning objectives

The students will have comprehensive knowledge in designs of energy-efficient semiconductor architecture and some process technology in order to produce cost-efficient production methods for high-volume top-quality and reliability semiconductor chips.
The focus is on silicon carbide (SiC; so-called wide bandgap (wbg) semiconductors and their key role in electric mobility.

Content
The lecture contains the following focus topics:
  • Semiconductors: Si vs. SiC Industrialization: Comparison: Material, Timeline.
  • Bulk Growth of SiC (and Si).
  • Device Manufacturing Technology.
  • Unipolare und Bipolare Limits (the impact of the WBG).
  • Charge Compensated and Charge-Coupled Designs.
  • Energy-Efficient, Failure Robust Power Rectifiers in SiC.
  • Unipolar Power MOSFETs:
    • MOS-interface physics; ultra-brief: V,D,U-MOS architectures.
    • Si: SC, CC, SJ, GD-CC architectures.
    • SiC: planar, AccuFET, deep p++ - plug architectures: 1, 2.
  • Unipolar Power JFETs and Cascodes.
  • Bipolar Switches: BJTs, Thyristors, IGBTs.
  • Dynamic Behaviour: Switching and Failure Mechanisms.

News

The Electron Devices Society Newsletter, published quarterly, covers regional and chapter activities, technical meetings, awards, and other news and initiatives of the society.

This series of articles has been initiated by Joachim N. Burghartz at the Institute for Microelectronics Stuttgart (IMS CHIPS), and will be edited by him and Simon Deleonibus.

Microelectronics have been successful in more than 50 years of continuous advancement following Gordon Moore’s vision from 1965. This progress became possible mostly through directed progress in device technology, following the ITRS roadmap. However, there were also unexpected discoveries and coincidental inventions that had a distinct and even fundamental impact on the art of microelectronics.
Those achievements will be highlighted in a series of articles in the EDS Newsletter in 2018 and 2019 as outlined below:

  • Overview by J. Burghartz and S. Deleonibus (July 2018)
  • Electronic Materials (October 2018)
  • Process Technology (January 2018)
  • Device Structures (April 2019)
  • Concepts&Techniques (July 2019)
  • Technologies (October 2019)
