Planar silicon technology has been used to fabricate mesa Schottky barrier diodes with high breakdown voltages. This method proves to be superior to alternate methods used to increase the breakdown voltage of Schottky diodes. The processing techniques and characteristics of mesa Schottky diodes are described in this paper.
