Welcome to this installment of EE Classroom on Silicon Carbide!
It’s a wide bandgap world in power electronics. And Silicon Carbide (SiC), while not world-dominating, has already made its mark in bringing faster, smaller, and more reliable components than its fellow semiconductors to market. Specifically, SiC-based components can operate at high temperatures (as high as 400 C) and higher voltages, power levels, and frequencies.
While SiC components have been around for a couple of decades, there is still a lot to learn and a lot to consider when choosing the most suitable WBG semiconductor for your device. Let us help with tutorials, from looking at how WBG semis stack up in power conversion efficiency to an overview of SiC FETs and MOSFETs. Brush up on your background of MOSFETs, SiC MOSFETs, and the all-important diode.
Then? Take all the knowledge to our sponsor’s pages, where it all becomes an even more real Silicon Carbide world.
