Silicon Carbide Diodes: Introduction

  • Silicon carbide is a semiconductor compound with superior power characteristics than silicon, which make it ideal for use in power electronics applications
  • In a silicon carbide diode, a connection is formed between the semiconductor and the metal to create a Schottky barrier
  • Silicon power diodes with the highest performance are known as Schottky barrier diodes. These diodes have the lowest reverse recovery time, which reduces switching losses and increases system efficiency.
  • Silicon carbide diodes are available in low weight and small size, and at an affordable price. They offer high efficiency and operation at high temperatures, due to which they are increasingly used in applications such as solar inverters, telecom power supplies, switch-mode power supplies, uninterruptible power supplies, industrial motor drives, and electric vehicle charging stations.
  • Silicon carbide diodes are employed in various end-use sectors such as automotive, industrial, and energy & utility
