  • Patent number: 10084052
    Abstract: In a semiconductor device, a gate insulating film is provided with a multi-layer structure including a first insulating film and a second insulating film. The first insulating film is formed of an insulating film containing an element having an oxygen binding force larger than that of an element contained in the second insulating film, and the total charge amount is increased. Specifically, by performing oxygen anneal, it is possible to perform the step of supplying oxygen into an aluminum oxide film and increase the total charge amount. This allows a negative fixed charge density in the gate insulating film in the vicinity of an interface with a GaN layer to be set to a value of not less than 2.5×1011 cm?2 and allows a normally-off element to be reliably provided.

  • Patent number: 8145384
    Abstract: The present invention provides a traveling speed reduction gear lubricating oil cooling device that enables optimal temperature control for lubricating oil delivered via a lubricating oil pump that can be started up with a relatively small motor without running the risk of damage to an oil cooler in a cold work environment even when a temperature sensor that detects the temperature of the lubricating oil is installed outside a wheel mounting sleeve. During a startup operation, provided that the detected temperature at a traveling motor is higher than the reference temperature, the lubricating oil pump is driven at a speed in a lower speed range relative to the normal operation speed range. In addition, during the startup operation, the rotation speed of the drive motor for the lubricating oil pump is increased in correspondence to a rise in the temperature detected by a lubricating oil temperature detection sensor.
