The automotive market is witnessing a surge of interest in silicon carbide (SiC) power semiconductor devices. Presently, SiC power devices still lag behind traditional silicon-based IGBTs in terms of cost and reliability. Nonetheless, nearly all automotive OEMs and tier-1 suppliers have either begun adopting SiC for the components used their electrified vehicle models, or they are developing related products. On the whole, the activities of OEMs and suppliers demonstrate the growing importance of SiC-related technologies within the automotive industry. In terms of applications, SiC power devices are mainly intended for the main traction inverter, onboard charger, DC/DC converter, and compressor within the HVAC system. In particular, SiC power devices are regarded as critical for the performance of the main traction inverter. SiC MOSFET is gradually replacing Si IGBT for the main traction inverters of the new energy vehicles (NEVs) belonging to the midrange and high-end segments.
