Recent Developments Accelerating SiC Adoption


Article Preview

The benefits of SiC devices for use in power electronics has been long understood, and over 25 years of sustained development in materials and devices has brought adoption to a tipping point [1,15]. It takes the confluence of many separate developments to build the necessary momentum for accelerated adoption, and we will examine these factors.
