The letter presents a simple design/technological approach which increases both the (DC and small-signal) current gains and the voltage ratings (VCEO(SVS) and VCBO) of power bipolar transistors. The novel method offers a fair balance between cost-effectiveness and overall device performance, the electro-thermal reliability included.
