Silicon Carbide, Silicon Carbide Power Modules

Silicon Carbide (SiC) technology has improved several systems and subsystem components across a variety of applications. When compared with silicon, Silicon Carbide has demonstrated better power density, and efficiency through faster switching, flat RDS(on) over temperature and at better body diode performance.

This article will explore how Wolfspeed’s SiC components enable offline SMPS systems to excel in terms of efficiency, power density, and overall system cost, particularly when compared with Si and GaN devices.
