Podium Session at PCIM Europe Marks New Chapter in GaN Power Device Adoption
While silicon carbide devices have been gaining a stronger beachhead in displacing IGBTs in higher voltage applications, the evolution of GaN as a cost-effective alternative to Si MOSFETs in applications from 200V up through 600V was, in many instances, moving at a glacial pace.
2020 Vision: Key Trends in Power and Energy Management
Over the next four years, our industry will continue to face significant energy management challenges, such as the burden of delivering and storing more power. The world’s population consumes about 17 terawatts of power from various energy sources, with the highest consumption happening in developed countries like the U.S.(1) The problem is finding ways to deliver this massive amount of power more efficiently. The solution: breakthroughs in power electronics.
Successful 10th Battery Experts Forum
An even more comprehensive program impressed the participants of the 10th Battery Experts Forum – formerly called "Development Forum Accumulator Technologies" – organized by Batteryuniversity in Aschaffenburg, Germany, from 5 through 7 April 2016. More than 40 top-class speakers informed around 600 experts about state-of-the-art technology trends, who attended to discover trends and to find solutions.

Is Only Full SiC the "Real“ SiC?
Whenever we talk about Silicon Carbide and its applications, our thoughts jump to Silicon Carbide MOSFET power modules, the so called “Full SiC” module. Unipolar SiC MOSFETs switch much faster with lower switching losses than any other silicon device, allowing drastically increased switching frequencies with reductions in overall power losses and increased efficiency in power output.
