Taking Advantage of SiC’s High Switching Speeds


For several years, silicon carbide (SiC) has created a lot of buzz in the power electronics community. At the risk of oversimplifying, the hype comes down to one simple advantage that SiC offers over incumbent silicon power devices: the simultaneous ability to switch at high speeds and block thousands of volts. The result is smaller, lighter systems that are more efficient and often less expensive.
