Establish silicon carbide application in power electronics in europe

Objective

The energy conversion process directly impacts on the quality of life for all European citizens in many ways, from automotive and electric traction to power generation and distribution. Our project adopts a problem solving approach, and we have assembled a unique team of globally recognized experts in all the necessary aspects of semiconductor technology and power electronics. The project will develop Next generation power devices based on a new material system, Silicon Carbide (SiC), which will be compact, lightweight and energy efficient. Designing, building and introducing a superior power MOS switch and complementary power diode to operate at voltages in excess of 3.3kV will achieve this goal.
