On-demand webinar | Design Opportunities in Silicon Carbide for New Energies, EV, and Industrial Power Conversion

With our silicon-carbide MOSFETs and diodes  


Watch the webinar replay to learn the fundamentals of wide bandgap semiconductors, and how the unique properties of silicon carbide enable development of new, higher-performing power solutions for next-generation applications.

Efficiency in power conversion is critical for the deployment and adoption of new energies, including solar, wind, and battery-powered systems used in industrial and automotive environments. The physical properties of wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductor materials, such as silicon carbide (SiC), are proving to be very effective towards that goal, and as a result a new wave a WBG power discrete products have reached the market in the past few years.

During the session, you'll be introduced to SiC MOSFETs and diodes capable of reaching extremely high power density at component and system level. This characteristic enables them to provide excellent efficiency in high-voltage, high-frequency converters, particularly in electric vehicle (EV) and industrial applications.

You will learn:

  • The basics of wide bandgap semiconductors
  • The benefits offered by SiC MOSFETs and diodes
  • SiC-based system solutions from ST for:
    • EV traction inverter
    • On-board charging
    • Modified Vienna rectifier for industrial power factor correction (PFC)
