We propose and fabricate a new base resistance-controlled thyristor (BKT) employing a self-aligned corrugated p-base. The new device, entitled CB-BRT, suppresses the snap-back effectively and increases the maximum controllable current. Experimental results show that the snap-back of the CB-BRT is reduced significantly when compared with that of the conventional BRT. Also, the maximum controllable current of the CB-BRT increases as compared with the conventional BRT.
