  • Increasing demand for electric and hybrid vehicles is driving the growth of the SiC diodes market

Silicon carbide is one of the rapidly emerging semiconductor materials that enables power devices to operate at high switching frequencies with lower losses and temperature. As the demand for hybrid and electric vehicles is increasing rapidly, the need for energy-efficient power conversion electronics in the automotive market is becoming critical. Power electronic devices are capable of offering effective and efficient operations at higher temperatures.

  • Growing demand of SiC diodes due to their high-temperature capabilities

The wider energy band gap of silicon carbide is one of the main benefits over pure silicon or gallium arsenide. The wide band gap of silicon carbide material helps reduce the intrinsic carrier concentrations for higher-temperature operations, as well as helps reduce leakage currents. Due to these properties, SiC diodes are being widely used for high-temperature devices, high-frequency light detection, and for high-frequency switching.

  • Increasing demand for high-power semiconductors

Silicon-based high-power devices are playing an important role in enabling modern high-power systems, especially in the fields of industrial, automotive, and telecommunication. In past few years, the revolution of power electronics has swept across the power delivery and automation sectors, and has opened up a wide range of possibilities in terms of controlling the way electrical energy is transported and used. The progress of power devices has been largely reliant on the processes and technologies developed primarily for lower power applications, following which it has been scaled and optimized to enable components to withstand higher currents and voltages to meet the requirements of higher power ratings.
