Silicon carbide (SiC)

Is known as an abrasive material for sample preparation and as a fast-switching semiconductor material in electronics.

As a semiconductor material, SiC is a wide-band-gap semiconductor. SiC chips are increasingly being used in power modules for automotive electronics in particular. Due to its higher switching speed and application temperature, the material meets the requirements for tight installation spaces with high reliability requirements. SiC MosFETs are usually joined to the circuit board by silver sintering in order to fully utilize the potential of the semiconductor.
