The advent of the power MOSFET is one of the most important developments in power electronics in recent years. This book provides the power MOSFET user with a thorough understanding of the device's behavior in terms of the underlying physical processes. The authors also take a broad look at applications and provide an in-depth examination of several circuits in order to illustrate the practical details of power MOSFET use. The text has been designed for electrical and design engineers, semiconductor device designers, and students of electrical and electronics engineering.
