4H-SiC p+-n+ Zener diodes with a breakdown at voltage of 22 V have been fabricated and characterized in continuous and pulsed mode of operation at ambient temperatures of up to 200°C. The diodes were capable of operating at dc current densities up to 8 kA/cm2 and pulsed current densities up to 100 kA/cm2. They exhibited a value of isothermal dynamic impedance of less than 2.5 Ω at 200°C, a zero bias capacitance of 28 pF and mixed avalanche-tunnel breakdown with a positive temperature coefficient of breakdown voltage of about (8-10)·10 -5K-1.
