  • Patent number: 8415773
    Abstract: A semiconductor component having at least one pn junction and an associated production method. The semiconductor component has a layer sequence of a first zone having a first dopant. The first zone faces a first main area. Adjacent to the first zone are a second zone having a low concentration of a second dopant, a subsequent buffer layer, the third zone, also having the second dopant and a subsequent fourth zone having a high concentration of the second dopant. The fourth zone faces a second main area. In this case, the concentration of the second doping of the buffer layer is higher at the first interface of the barrier layer with the second zone than at the second interface with the fourth zone. According to the invention, the buffer layer is produced by ion implantation.

  • Patent number: 7821028
    Abstract: A power semiconductor component and a method for producing such a component. The component comprises a semiconductor base body having a first doping. A pn junction is formed in the base body by a contact region having a second doping with a first doping profile. A field ring structure has a second doping with a second doping profile. The contact region and the field ring structure are arranged at respectively assigned first and second partial areas of a first surface of the base body. Both extend into the base body, wherein the base body has, for the field ring structure, a trench-type cutout assigned to each respective field ring, the surface of said cutout following the contour of the assigned doping profile.
