Now more than ever, engineers are choosing Silicon Carbide (SiC)-based products for their higher efficiency, power density, and better overall system cost effectiveness than Silicon (Si)-based components. Beyond the basic design principles common between SiC and Si, and the need to keep in mind SiC’s different characteristics, capabilities and advantages, engineers must model and simulate to ensure they will meet their design goals.

As with Si, SiC now has optimized tools and models available from various suppliers, and standard modeling mitigations can be applied. While there are differences between tools like LTSpice, PLECS, and Wolfspeed’s SpeedFit 2.0 Design Simulator™, tips from Wolfspeed’s Power experts will help achieve simulation accuracy with SiC…
