High Power Electronics
Power electronics based on silicon carbide (SiC) enable systems to achieve significantly improved power utilization and conversion efficiencies, lower operating temperatures and reduced thermal load. This enhances reliability, shortens battery charging time, reduces overall electricity consumption and increases total system performance. One leading application is in automotive systems where SiC power electronics can be found in Electric Vehicles (EV), Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) and Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEV), specifically in primary motor drive inverters, battery chargers, DC/DC converters and inverters to power other systems in the car. II-VI is a global leader in the manufacturing of high quality n-type SiC semiconductor substrates, the fundamental building block upon which these power electronics are built. Our comprehensive understanding of crystal growth and materials processing was acquired over decades of sustained R&D and manufacturing and allows us to continuously evolve our technology and IP portfolio. We offer a full range of substrate diameters, including the world’s first 200 mm.
