Qorvo Blog….The Transition from Si to SiC in Power Electronics

Everyone knows that Silicon (Si) has been a life-changing technology. Today a spinoff technology has entered the marketplace – Silicon Carbide (SiC) – with its higher power levels, faster switching speeds and is thermally superior to Si.

For a long time, Si has been the semiconductor material of choice in power electronics applications. Recently, there has been a shift away from Si to SiC devices, mostly due to the significant improvements in the performance and reliability of SiC technology.

This blog explores how SiC allows engineers to design in areas unattainable using Si, to create next-generation solutions for our new digital world.
