An Empirical Large Signal Model for Silicon Carbide MESFETs

Ahmed Sayed, Georg Boeck
In this paper, a large signal table-based model for SiC MESFET is presented. A packaged commercially available high power MESFET device (CREE CRF24010) is adopted for the model development. The extracted bias-dependent elements of the small signal model as well as the measured DC data are mathematically described by small modification of Angelov's formulation. Dispersion between DC and RF characteristics of the drain current is also observed and interpreted. The new model is capable to predict
