Yes. They told me they are still working on the spice models. They will be getting back to me when they are finished.

I have seen that pdf, but I am waiting on them to send me their official spice model.

Great work knutn. I will have a look at it.

I had also seen the table in the Semisouth datasheet, but it was incomplete in comparison to other models i had used and i am not informed enough to proceed otherwise. Thanks knutn for the model. Now i can just simulate destroying it. Interesting that the dollar sign came up in your measurements.

This modeled just as I expected. Thanks for knutn! I mean thanks Knutn!

Those values for CGSO and CGDO are not believable. Does anyone have better values for these parameters? They are essential for predicting AC behavior and harmonic distortion components.

No, you are right; I did not model these capacitances. If you take a look at the data sheet, you will see that Semisouth is specifying Ciss=670 pF, Coss=103 pF and Crss=97 pF at VDD=100V. My first try for the Spice model would be to set CGSO=Ciss=700E-12 and CGDO=Crss=100E-12 (Keep the bulk-drain capacitance CBD=1.1197E-9). Please, be aware that especially CGD increases when the drain-gate voltage decreases. I am afraid you will have to try to run Spice and change the values to comply with the data sheet values. Anyone who has any values from Semisouth?

hey guys!

I made a model of the depletion SiC-JFET (SJDP120R085)...or at least I tried to. I took the model and the LTspice files of analogspiceman and changed them. The only thing that doesn't want to work properly is the Gate Current (Fig.6) [and I cheated a bit in Fig.10 Typical Capacitance: I think the "0.01uA" from "im(I(Vg))/(2*Pi*0.01uA)" should be "10uA" if I interpret the .plt file of analogspiceman correctly].

Do you have any idea what I'm doing wrong?
