By Zhongda Li, NPI Manager at UnitedSiC Anyone who’s pulled a warm phone charger from a wall socket will sense that power conversion can be inefficient. Joules that were supposed to be transferred to the phone’s battery instead end up warming the atmosphere. Anyone who has a drawer full of such chargers for long-defunct mobile

By Zhongda Li, NPI Manager at UnitedSiC   The shift to electric traction for vehicles is well under way, with companies such as BMW, Nissan and Tesla all marketing competent cars. The advantages of such vehicles, such as lower pollution at point of use and lower operating costs, come at the cost of an increased

By Zhongda Li, NPI manager at UnitedSiC There’s no beating the laws of physics. Resistors are going to dissipate electrical energy as heat and drop voltages. Capacitors will take time to store charge, and time to release it. Inductors will take time to create and collapse electromagnetic fields. There’s nothing we can do about it,

The economics of large solar farms are based on making money by selling energy to the grid. Energy-conversion efficiency and equipment costs are extremely important factors determining viability, and both are influenced by design choices that shape the inverter and associated power-conditioning electronics. Silicon carbide technology promises major gains in efficiency, but other factors have

By Anup Bhalla, VP Engineering at UnitedSiC   The cascode has proved to be a very useful structure since it was conceived way back in the vacuum-tube age to overcome the Miller effect, which causes a signal source to see an input capacitance much greater than the parasitic capacitances present in the device. Of course,

By Anup Bhalla, VP Engineering at UnitedSiC Silicon carbide has offered plenty of promise as a power-semiconductor wonder material, but has only recently taken off commercially. What has happened to kickstart SiC’s success, and what are its prospects for the future? Although silicon carbide (SiC) has existed since the dawn of time (it occurs naturally,

By Christopher Rocneanu, Director of Sales EMEA & NA at UnitedSiC Switched-mode topologies have come to dominate today’s power conversion scene, offering greater efficiency, reduced heat dissipation and smaller circuit size than traditional linear principles. These are compelling advantages in all but a few applications. Still, there is room for improvement, as designers seek to
