The SiC Schottky diode, with its high blocking voltage capability, absence of reverse recovery, and negligible temperature dependence on switching behavior, is suitable for most power electronics applications especially in circuits that demand high efficiency and high switching frequencies. Recent studies dealing with the comparison of SiC Schottky with ultra-fast diodes are application-specific and they do not quantify the contribution of the superior switching performance of the SiC Schottky… CONTINUE READING
