CS International Conference March 18-19, 2014
Sheraton Frankfurt Airport Hotel & Conference Center
Come learn about opportunities, challenges and recent progress for SiC and GaN/Si compound semiconductor technologies for power electronic applications from Markus Behet, global market segment manager for Dow Corning Power Electronics Solutions, at CS International 2014.
A growing society and rising living standards are increasing world demand for energy. New sustainable energy sources and highly efficient and cost-effective conversion technologies are needed to meet future energy demands without increasing harmful emissions of carbon dioxide. One industry sector addressing this megatrend starts to significantly outpace the others; that sector is power electronics. New devices using wide bandgap semiconductors like SiC or GaN are expected to have a large impact in many power electronic systems as they are significantly more durable, energy-efficient and faster switching than devices made from other semiconductor materials. However the adoption speed for new technologies is slow for various reasons and is very dependent on the specific market requirements. This conference presentation will discuss today’s adoptions barriers. It will also highlight the recent significant progress for SiC and GaN/Si wafer & device technologies and what adoption can offer to power electronics manufacturers and global society at large.
