We propose to develop and commercialize novel normally-off III-Nitride insulated gate heterostructure field effect transistor (MOSHFET) for power converters. Based on our experience in high power insulated gate III-N HFET development, we strongly believe that this device is the most promising for achieving the best combination of low ON-resistance, high operating voltage and high switching frequencies. It is also the best wide bandgap device type that allows for stable and reliable operation at required high voltage and current levels.
