    hi everyone

    i wuld like to receive some information about the secondary breakdown
    I don't now exactly in wich devices and technology it appears, and it will
    be great to know some links on internet that explain how to make simulation
    in order to find it on a schematic.
    is the secondary breakdown correlated with the hot spot fenomena

    thanks a lot friends

    Typically occurs in bipolar Power devices ( not mosfet ). Some methods of
    device manufacturing are more / less susceptible to the effect.
    I suggest google. Motorola used to have some good application notes - they'll
    be at On Semi or Freescale now.
    Sorry, I don't understand the connection with schematics.
