The wide band-gap of Silicon Carbide (SiC) makes it a material suitable for high temperature integrated circuits [1], potentially operating up to and beyond 450°C. This paper describes the development of a 15V SiC CMOS technology developed to operate at high temperatures, n and p-channel transistor and preliminary circuit performance over temperature achieved in this technology.
