Abstract:
This paper investigates a printed circuit board (PCB)-embedding technology as packaging technology for 600 V class GaN-on-Si power devices and power integrated circuits (ICs). The electrical and thermal characteristics of PCB-embedding are investigated and compared to conventional assemblies based on wire-bonding and soldering.
