A SiC diode is a high-performance diode that has been attracting attention in recent years, using semiconductors composed of Si (silicon) and C (carbon) in various crystal types. 4H-SiC is mainly used as a diode because of its excellent characteristics. The most important features of 4H-SiC are its large band gap and high breakdown voltage due to the strong bonding between atoms. It also has a high thermal conductivity and can operate at high speeds. They are highly anticipated as semiconductors that can replace Si, which is said to be nearing its performance limit.
SiC diodes are expected to be used as high-performance power devices. For example, they are used in electric vehicles, home appliances, and quick chargers. However, since they are devices that support the foundation of various products, they will be used for anything. The use of SiC also enables high-speed operation, which lowers the recovery loss. In addition, the use of SiC allows for higher efficiency and lower reverse current, which reduces the amount of equipment needed to reduce noise. Similarly, inductors and other components can be reduced because high-frequency operation is possible. For these reasons, fewer components are needed to be incorporated, and the product itself can be made smaller.
The SiC diodes are one of the diodes that are expected to be used in a variety of products in the future. Here, we will introduce how SiC diodes have shown their usefulness, starting with the structure of and features of diodes using SICs.
