Silicon Carbide

Silicon carbide (SiC) offers significant advantages in high-power, high voltage applications where power density, higher performance and reliability are of the utmost importance. Solar inverters, welding, plasma cutters, fast vehicle chargers and oil exploration are a few examples of applications that benefit from the higher breakdown field strength and improved thermal conductivity that SiC offers over silicon (Si) material.

Microchip offers a full line of Module Adapter Boards (MABs) and gate driver cores that result in fully functional, plug-and-play gate driver boards. Microchip’s offering includes adapter boards for a wide range of Silicon Carbide (SiC) power modules.
