The Building Blocks of Silicon Carbide, a Rising Star
For the world of power #Electronics the next big thing is #SiliconCarbide (SiC). Silicon-based #Chips are currently used to manage power in everything from portable electronics to industrial-scale equipment. Silicon-based chips are the workhorse of the industry. The technology is familiar and the chips are readily available. A decade of work and a keen eye for the future have enabled scientists at #GEGlobalResearch to introduce the first industrially ready #SiC devices to the world. These devices operate at higher frequencies and temperatures and convert electric power at higher efficiencies. Additionally, SiC-based devices manage the same level of power at half the size, enabling dramatic increases in power density and reliability.
