Advantages of Using a Silicon Carbide Diode in Power Electronics

Silicon carbide (formerly Carborundum) has become increasingly important for use in power electronics applications, particularly with Schottky barrier diodes. SiC Schottky diodes consist of a metal-semiconductor junction where only electrons flow, rather than holes as in traditional PN junction diodes. These devices feature rapid recovery times that enable smaller magnetic and passive components to be …
