Abstract
Wide-bandgap GaN-based power switching devices are capable of delivering superior performance (e.g. lower on-state loss, higher off-state breakdown, higher switching frequency, higher operating temperature, etc.) for electric power converters, owing to the materials’ large bandgap, high breakdown field, and high electron saturation velocity. Currently, the lateral GaN-based heterojunction devices grown on low-cost and highly scalable Si substrates (i.e. GaN-on-Si platform) are dominating the scene of technology development in both industry and academia. To successfully commercialize GaN-on-Si power electronic devices, several key technical challenges need to be clearly understood and adequately addressed.
In this presentation, comprehensive discussions on the key challenges facing GaN-on-Si power device technology will be made from the view point of obtaining power-electronics-relevant characteristics including normally-off operation, large gate swing, small Vth-instability, high breakdown voltage and low dynamic on-resistance. The benefits in high-level integration of the lateral GaN device technology will be presented as well with a few examples of GaN mixed-signal integrated circuits.

Biography
Prof. Kevin J. Chen received his B.S. degree from Peking University, Beijing, China in 1988, and PhD degree from University of Maryland, College Park, USA in 1993. His industry experience includes performing R&D work on III-V high speed device technologies in NTT LSI Laboratories, Japan and Agilent Technologies, USA.
