The automotive market for Silicon Carbide (SiC) devices is widely expected to exceed the $1.5 billion threshold in 2025 with an annual growth rate (CAGR) of 38 percent. This is driven by the value provided by SiC based components in On-board chargers, DC-DC converters and in Traction inverters. With the launch of

The power-semiconductor switches used in power supplies and inverters are based on two technologies, namely MOSFETs and IGBTs. MOSFETs can operate at relatively high switching frequencies significantly above 30 kHz but, unlike IGBTs, they have a very large chip surface area.
A new generation of IGBT modules f
