Class Information
Number: 438/133
Name: Semiconductor device manufacturing: process > Making regenerative-type switching device (e.g., scr, igbt, thyristor, etc.)
Description: Process for making a switching device structure acting as if it has two or more active emitter junctions each of which is associated with a separate, equivalent transistor having an individual gain and which, when initiated by a base region current, causes the equivalent transistors to mutually drive each other in a regenerative manner to lower the voltage drop between emitter regions.
