Silicon Carbide Enables PFC Evolution
White Paper Overview
Silicon carbide (SiC) power devices have long been used in a wide variety of applications, including server power supplies, energy storage systems, and solar-panel power inverters. The move to electric drive by the automotive industry has recently driven growth in SiC use, as well as in design engineer attention toward the benefits of the technology in wider application areas.
There are a number of technologies at the power supply designer’s disposal to meet the performance criteria needed for their end product, including gallium nitride (GaN), SiC, and various silicon (Si)-based technologies like MOSFETs, insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs), and superjunction (SJ) devices.
In this white paper from Wolfspeed, learn more about selecting a device technology, center of choice, totem pole topology, and how to enable PFC evolution.
