Silicon Carbide Semiconductor Products 3 Overview Breakthrough Technology Coines High Performance With Low Losses Silicon Carbide (SiC) semiconductors provide an innovative option for power electronic designers looking for improved system efficiency
Silicon carbide is formed in two ways, reaction bonding and sintering. Each forming method greatly affects the end microstructure. Reaction bonded SiC is made by infiltrating compacts made of mixtures of SiC and carbon with liquid silicon.
In fact, the FREEDM lab is already hard at work manufacturing ultra-high-density silicon-carbide components that they hope will allow them to reach the DoE''s goal long before 2020. The researchers are also working on stripping out the liquid cooling systems required by today''s inverters because the wide-bandgap materials produce much less heat than narrow-bandgap materials.
