Webinar | Accelerating Vehicle Electrification with Silicon Carbide Power Devices

Discover a new wave of Silicon Carbide products and how they are enhancing power conversion in electric vehicles.

 

The physical properties of wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductor materials are proving to be very attractive for power conversion, and a new wave a WBG power discrete products have reached the market in the past few years.

The presentation explains what makes Silicon Carbide (SiC) transistors and diodes so attractive, particularly for increasing the performance of electric vehicle (EV) and hybrid electrical vehicle (HEV) applications such as traction inverters and on-board chargers.

Finally, we will explore the unique challenges posed by processing SiC products in high volumes, and new packaging technologies including modules designed to exploit Silicon Carbide’s high power density.
