  • Publication number: 20190273131
    Abstract: A semiconductor device includes a semiconductor body having a base region incorporating a field stop zone where the base region and the field stop zone are both formed using an epitaxial process. Furthermore, the epitaxial layer field stop zone is formed with an enhanced doping profile to realize improved soft-switching performance for the semiconductor device. In some embodiments, the enhanced doping profile formed in the field stop zone includes varying, non-constant doping levels. In some embodiments, the enhanced doping profile includes one of an extended graded doping profile, a multiple stepped flat doping profile, or a multiple spike doping profile. The epitaxial layer field stop zone of the present invention enables complex field stop zone doping profiles to be used to obtain the desired soft-switching characteristics in the semiconductor device.

  • Patent number: 9316880
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for unifying steps of sealing material so that the yield and the reliability of a liquid-crystal display device become high. A starting film of scanning lines is patterned so that prismatic dummy wirings 301 for the first layer which are not electrically connected are formed in regions R1 and R2, and wirings 302 extending from the pixel section are formed in a region R3, and wirings 303 having connection end portions 303a are formed in a region R4. After an interlayer insulation film is formed, the starting film of the signal lines is patterned so that the dummy wirings 304 for the second layer are formed to embed the gaps between the wirings 301 to 303, and also the wirings 305 and the wirings 303 which extend from the pixel portion are connected to each other. This permits unification of the cross-sectional structure of the sealing material formation region.

  • Patent number: 8586985
    Abstract: The present invention provides an active matrix type display device having a high aperture ratio and a required auxiliary capacitor. A source line and a gate line are overlapped with part of a pixel electrode. This overlapped region functions to be a black matrix. Further, an electrode pattern made of the same material as the pixel electrode is disposed to form the auxiliary capacitor by utilizing the pixel electrode. It allows a required value of auxiliary capacitor to be obtained without dropping the aperture ratio. Also, it allows the electrode pattern to function as a electrically shielding film for suppressing the cross-talk between the source and gate lines and the pixel electrode.
