SiC: Power Semiconductor Inflection

21st century zero-emission energy network will be enabled by silicon carbide (SiC) to minimize adverse impacts of green-house emissions and transition global economies to a sustainable growth path. Innovations in SiC power semiconductors are at the heart of this transformation both in device structure, process integration and packaging technology. Silicon Carbide (SiC) is driving high power and high frequency switching power conversions with innovative device structure enabling higher efficiencies compared to existing silicon power semiconductor. Simultaneously, innovations in packaging with new and high-performance interconnects, substrate materials and scalable packaging platforms are essential to take advantage of this new material. Finally, supply chain resiliency is key to deliver high performance products to emerging high growth applications like Electric Vehicles (EVs), renewable energy and charging infrastructure.
