During recent years, silicon carbide (SiC) power electronics has gone from being a promising future technology to being a potent alternative to state-of-the-art silicon (Si) technology in high-efficiency, highfrequency, and high-temperature applications. The reasons for this are that SiC power electronics may have higher voltage ratings, lower voltage drops, higher maximum temperatures, and higher thermal conductivities. It is now a fact that several manufacturers are capable of developing and processing high-quality transistors at cost that permit introduction of new products in application areas where the benefits of the SiC technology can provide significant system advantages.
