White paper | Benefits of using our wide bandgap technology

Power electronics designers have been waiting for breakthrough technologies to reshuffle circuit topologies and boost efficiency in energy conversion systems. SiC technology perfectly matches these expectations, and GaN is quite promising...
In this whitepaper, on top of insights on both SiC and GaN, get a true feedback about which application types and conditions it makes sense to use SiC MOSFETs rather than traditional silicon devices in terms of performance and cost-effectiveness.
It covers the following topics:
  • How the advent of silicon carbide paves the way for large-scale adoption of wide bandgap semiconductors
  • Benefits of SiC MOSFETs and GaN HEMTs in various applications
  • Planar versus Trench technologies: the SiC MOSFET roadmap
  • Design advantages of using SiC MOSFETs 
  • Benefits of using GaN devices and their future potential


ST produces SiC MOSFETs and diodes in very large volumes suiting a large spectrum of applications. We are partnering with many customers to contribute to development of their future applications, offering clear answers and sharing insights about the significant potential for innovation of our SiC and GaN devices in power electronics.
