Abstract

Applied Novel Devices (AND) is commercializing an innovative power MOSFET technology platform (called ANDFET) that brings in several unique GaN-like performance benefits to Si power devices at a fraction of the cost.  As part of this sequential proposal, we propose to increase the technical maturity level and manufacturing readiness level from TRL/MRL level 6 to level 8.  During this project, AND will deliver Si wafer/die, packaged parts, design kits and new technology to Army and DoD as well as commercial customers to bring this technology to market.  The unique combined features of ultra-low ON resistance (Rdson) and low output capacitance and near zero reverse recovery offered by this technology invented by AND can provide significant system level benefits in faster switching, lower loss, high efficiency and lower cost in a vast range of applications such as DC-DC conversion, electronic-fuses, battery management and next generation RF wireless communication systems.  In addition, this technology has been qualified at a US DoD-trusted wafer foundry in Minnesota.  Technology qualification and volume production in US based foundries is critical to DoD and the nation in enhancing domestic semiconductor manufacturing capabilities.
