6. Silicon Carbide Brings Electric Vehicles to All
Now that the first electric cars with Silicon Carbide MOSFETs and SiC Diodes are officially available, we can expect that more car manufacturers will adopt the new material. Its wider bandgap makes it a perfect component for this platform and we can only assume that the industry will use this technology to shrink and integrate power modules to simplify designs and reduce costs. SiC will not completely replace more traditional Silicon power components. They each have their place in a vehicle, but as the demand for SiC increases, we can expect massive changes in the power modules of electric cars.
