Understanding GaN and SiC in Power Semiconductors
GaN and SiC are two distinct power semiconductor materials, each excelling in specific power and voltage requirements. Here’s a brief overview of their strengths:
Gallium Nitride (GaN):
- Best suited for devices with low to medium power and voltage requirements.
- Provides advantages like faster charging, faster switching, higher power density, and greater energy savings when compared to silicon chips.
- GaN chips find applications in mobile devices, chargers, home appliances, and consumer electronics.
- The GaN chips best fitted for applications under 1,000 volts and 10,000 watts.
Silicon Carbide (SiC):
- Better suited for medium to high power and voltage applications.
- Offers exceptional performance in electric vehicles, commercial solar and wind power, and industrial machine applications.
- SiC chips are known for their ability to handle higher voltages and power levels effectively.
We invite industry stakeholders, researchers, and educational institutions to join us on this transformative journey, where we aim to redefine the possibilities of semiconductor technology and make a lasting impact on multiple sectors.
