A silicon carbide MOSFET (10) is formed to have a high breakdown voltage. A breakdown enhancement layer (20) is formed between a channel region (14) and a drift layer (12). The breakdown enhancement layer (20) has a lower doping concentration that increases the width of a depletion region (24) near a gate insulator (17). The increased depletion region width improves the breakdown voltage.
