Efficiency in power conversion is critical for the deployment and adoption of new energies, including solar, wind, and battery-powered systems used in industrial and automotive environments. The physical properties of wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductor materials, such as silicon carbide (SiC), are proving to be very effective towards that goal, and as a result a new wave a WBG power discrete products have reached the market in the past few years.
During the session, you'll be introduced to SiC MOSFETs and diodes capable of reaching extremely high power density at component and system level. This characteristic enables them to provide excellent efficiency in high-voltage, high-frequency converters, particularly in electric vehicle (EV) and industrial applications.
