6 Self-Heating Effects Id (A) Vd,ext = Vd + Id*RS
348K < TNOM < 300K 10 mW 20 mW 30 mW 40 mW 50 mW 60 mW 70 mW 80 mW Rth = 0 K/W , RS = 0.32 W Rth = 600 K/W, RS = 1 W ©rlc L16-07Mar2011

7 Self-Heating Effects SPICE models the IS, etc. the same for all power dissipations. The effect of diode self-heating is to increase the current at all voltages. In this case, an Rth of 600K/W gave nearly the same simulation as re-setting RS from 1 Ohm to 0.32 Ohm. The diode Tj is different at all curr. ©rlc L16-07Mar2011

8 PiN Diode PiN: Na >> Nint (= N-) & Nint << Nd
Wi = Intrinsic region (metall.) width Em,P-T = Peak field mag. when xn = Wi Vbi = fi = Vtln(NaNd/ni2) Vbi,int = fi,int = Vtln(NaNint/ni2) VHL = Vtln(Nd/Nint), the offset at N+N- Vbi = Vbi,int + VHL VPT = applied voltage when xn = Wi ©rlc L16-07Mar2011

12 Diode Switching Consider the charging and discharging of a Pn diode
(Na > Nd) Wd << Lp For t < 0, apply the Thevenin pair VF and RF, so that in steady state IF = (VF - Va)/RF, VF >> Va , so current source For t > 0, apply VR and RR IR = (VR + Va)/RR, VR >> Va, so current source ©rlc L16-07Mar2011

13 Diode switching (cont.)
