BaSiCs of SiC: The Importance of Silicon Carbide’s Wide Bandgap
In this newest BaSiCs of SiC post, we’re going to discuss bandgaps and find out why SiC’s wide bandgap is key to its usefulness.
BaSiCs of SiC Series: Silicon Carbide’s Unique Properties and Applications
Although it might seem like a recent innovation, silicon carbide (SiC) has actually been in use since the late 1800s, beginning as an abrasive material and later finding applications in a wide variety of industries (including semiconductors). The wide-ranging use of SiC is a natural consequence of the material’s extraordinary physical traits.
BaSiCs of SiC Series: The Extreme Durability of Silicon Carbide
Silicon carbide (SiC) is a ceramic material that, for the purposes of semiconductor applications, is often grown as a single crystal. Its inherent material properties, combined with being grown as a single crystal, make it one of the most durable semiconductor materials on the market. This durability goes far beyond just its electrical performance.
