SiC Resources

The team at PGC have been busy creating resources to spread the word about the revolution occurring in power electronics. Access free resources here, then feel free to get in touch to discuss this further.

EE Times - Power Up Podcast

Prof Peter Gammon appears as a guest on the EETimes Power Up Podcast to discuss the cost and technology of SiC Power Electronics. The discussion covered the similarities and differences of SiC devices to silicon and comparisons to GaN. Also discussed was the high costs of SiC, the subject of a PGC article. We cover the costs embedded in the SiC substrate, the need for technology improvement and increased competition, and the potential reduction of costs in the future.

Tech Deep Dive - Silicon Carbide

A deep dive into silicon carbide (SiC) market, to summarise what investors should know. Here, Prof Peter Gammon, talks about the power electronics market, material properties of SiC, suitability of SiC for high voltage applications, issues and challenges in producing SiC devices and the most important companies in the SiC supply chain.

Power Electronics for Young Adults

Prof Peter Gammon, in cartoon form, introduces SiC Power Electronics to the next generation of engineers. This is the companion to an article entitled How can electronics engineers help to power the green transition?

The cartoon and article was produced by Futurum Careers, a free online resource and magazine aimed at encouraging 14-19-year-olds worldwide to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEM).

Update! Now an accompanying podcast has been released, in which Prof Gammon discusses career paths into electronics engineering.

What is this Material they call SiC?

Prof Peter Gammon was the guest on Jed Dorsheimer's Canaccord Genuity's Hidden Joule podcast, in which we discuss: 

  • SiC’s role in future mobility and transport of electricity.

  • EV adoption of SiC in traction inverters.

  • Our transistor “dam” metaphor to make the technology more understandable for those without a EE background.

  • Comparisons to silicon and to gallium nitride.

PGC Report on high voltage Silicon Carbide power device technology

At PGC, we can advise you on today's SiC market, but we also look to the future. As a greater percentage of energy comes from renewables, and electricity demand soars, high and ultra-high voltage SiC technology will ensure that less energy is wasted on route to our homes. In this report from PGC, we assessed the prospects for HV SiC devices. Below is a sample, please enquire for the full version.
