Abstract
In this paper, the package TO-220C VDMOS devices are tested under the conditions of variable frequency and fixed-frequency vibration and the influence of vibration on source current leakage IDS and transconductance gm of device are discussed. The changes of device casing and chip surface are observed by microscope and the failure mechanism of device is analyzed. The experimental results show that IDS and gm of device became smaller with the increase of variable frequency. When the vibration frequency reaches 320Hz, the values of IDS and gm reached device failure criterion. Because parameters of each layer material in cell are different, the distribution of strains among layers which is caused by vibration generates defect or crazes. With the increase of time of the fixed-frequency vibration, some cell appears micro-cracks which expand to more cells gradually, which lead to device failure, life of VDMOS becomes shorter.
