One of the most promising materials for next-generation power components, diamond has promise for emerging new applications, such as ultra-fast electric vehicle charging stations, co-location with motors in high temperature environments, and solid-state transformers. These applications require high power devices with high reliability, high junction temperature tolerance, no thermal runaway, low on resistance, low turn-on voltage, low Ron and high breakdown voltage. Diamond devices are in the emerging stage, with current research exploring deposition, fabrication process flow development, and device repeatability. These studies are crucial for realizing the commercialization potential of diamond devices. In this paper, Advent Diamond describes the significant progress made in recent diamond deposition, device fabrication and device design that pave the way for next generation semiconductor devices.
