Why Choose SiC over Si for Your Next Bidirectional On-Board Charger Design?

2021-06-09T11:36:56-05:00June 9th, 2021|Categories: Article, Featured, Wolfspeed|

Silicon (Si)-based power electronics have long dominated the power electronics industry for their technological maturity and relative ease of accessibility. The silicon carbide (SiC) substrate, however, has gained traction of late due to its major intrinsic advantages, which align well with recent industry trends. This wide-bandgap (WBG) semiconductor can not only handle much larger energy
