Electromobility is transforming our automotive industry, and soon enough, the quest for a greener future will influence all power electronics designs. Due to the physical-electrical properties’ limitations of silicon material, it will no longer meet the higher power density requirements while keeping satisfactory power conversion efficiency needed for a higher energy standard. Recognizing the challenges our industry is facing, we will elaborate on the benefits of WBG technology and our efforts in supporting the demand of SiC devices from the mass market.
