Wide-bandgap (WBG) power transistors, especially those with 10 kV and above voltage capability, will enhance medium- and high-voltage systems. They will deliver unique capabilities to the design in ways that silicon could never achieve.
However, such devices aren’t always easy drop-in replacements for silicon devices. Larger, more complex systems must be redesigned to integrate them.
In this article, we’ll demonstrate some power-density approaches with the integration of WBG solutions into power designs. WBG integration will open new doors to a plethora of design architecture improvements in areas that we’ve never seen.
