Abstract:

Research was continued on the development of high-speed semiconductor switches for use in radar modulator and similar pulse type applications. The proposed devices are of two varieties - the SCL 70041, a two-terminal, four layer unit and the SCL 70042, a threeterminal gated SCR. The essential areas of improvement are to be switching speeds at high current levels and forward voltage capabilities. Data on the first group of engineering samples and circuits used for testing are described. The progress made on resistivity, wafer thickness, die cutting, diffusion and lifetime studies is also presented, as well as work done on metalizing and assembly techniques. Author
