Si vs. SiC

Designing SiC Technology-Based High-Performance Converters

Diverse power applications use Si-based power switches such as IGBTs and MOSFETs. Due to the advantages of wide bandgap material properties, using SiC-based devices promise a significant increase in system efficiency and far higher switching frequencies than today’s Si-based devices can offer. A question will arise: when should we choose Si versus SiC?


Key Takeaways

  • Review and compare the pros and cons of Silicon MOSFET, IGBTs, and SiC devices
  • Examine common power topologies and typical waveforms
  • Evaluate power losses in SiC devices and how to minimize losses
  • Show the advantages of the Kelvin source package
  • Introduce the onsemi SiC product portfolio
