- The JFET region is an essential for IGBT devices. This paper mainly uses the Silvaco Atlas simulation tool to investigate the dependence of the characteristics of IGBT on JFET region. The simulations focus on the study of the width and concentration of JFET region at different interface charge densities. The results show that there is a paradox between the optimization of turn-on characteristics and blocking characteristics of IGBT devices. The best combinations of width and concentration at different charge densities are determined in considerations of both the turn-on and blocking characteristics. The simulation results show that a JFET width of 3æm and a doping concentration of 6e15cm-3 are the best combination in most situations for high voltage (>20kV) IGBT devices.
