Silicon Carbide (SiC) technology has shown performance improvements over traditional silicon (Si) components across the board, including lower power losses, faster switching, higher operating temperatures, greater power density, and overall higher efficiency.

Wolfspeed’s upgraded portfolio of power modules can provide these advantages in industry-standard footprints with configurations that serve a variety of applications while also helping to bridge the power continuum between lower-power, discrete-based applications through industry standard footprints and optimized footprints in high power modules. This article will demonstrate how designers can increase system efficiency while lowering cost but most importantly, greatly increase the overall reliability system-wide…
