  • Presentation

Replacement, co-existence or transition – SiC contribution to power electronics markets now and in future.

SiC power devices have proven to meet application requirements for key power electronic markets and are bound to outgrow overall power semiconductor market. With the introduction of short circuit rugged SiC trench MOSFETs further performance improvements are becoming available and while there is no doubt on future success of SiC the question becomes obvious which application space will remain for Si and which role GaN can play in the future. The presentation will discuss driving factors for different applications and how future developments in power electronics will influence the selection of device technology.
