The more sophisticated power electronics systems become, the more of a challenge it is to properly test and evaluate them.

Advanced power solutions are at the heart of the current electronics revolution. With all of the advances in areas such as microcontroller design and machine learning, among others, the advent of significantly improved power systems to better drive these functionalities is a major development in the industry. These advances also mean challenges to the power test and evaluation industry. This Special Report on Power Test lists some interesting solutions.

 SiC Wafer Qualification

 Wide-bandgap materials like Gallium Nitride (GaN) and SIlicon Carbide (SiC) are already changing the world with performance several times better than that of Silicon. SiC, for example, has risen as the material of choice in advanced power systems such as those found in next-gen electric vehicles and industrial systems. One of the important enablers of this transition is that SiC chips are transitioning to larger, 200mm wafers that enable the chip counts to meet growing global demand.
