Research and development throughout the last decade has led to the emergence of silicon carbide (SiC) electronics. SiC’s potential for high-temperature, high-power, and highfrequency electronics arises out of attractive material properties such as wide band gap, high critical breakdown field, high thermal conductivity, and high electron saturation velocity. These properties, coupled with extreme chemical inertness and mechanical hardness, make SiC extremely attractive for electronics operating under extreme conditions.
