Recently iAbrasive has made an analysis on silicon carbide and its application on iAbrasive official website. (

During electric power production, delivery and distribution procedures, power transmission efficiency and availability factor are of vital importance. At present, the major material for electric power transmission device is silicon material, whose physical property has been exhausted in three decades. As a popular material in semiconductor industry, silicon carbide has great potential.

Sic also has a wide application in demanding industrial fields for voltage. According to China Semiconductor Association, silicon power device top off voltage can reach 6000V, while that of currently Sic power device can be as high as 200,000V. China Smart Grid construction requires power device whose top off voltage is higher than 10,000V. Single silicon power device cannot meet the requirement, while Sic power device is competent.

Besides, Sic plays as a pillar material in green energy development. According to relevant authorities, China has been suffering from resource constraints such as coal and petroleum and energy crisis has become an even greater problem in China. Chinese government has advocated green energy, photovoltaic power generation and wind power generation. Sic power device can improve power transmission efficiency as well as availability factor to relieve energy crisis.

Sic has been playing an important role in the development and construction of Chinese society . Meanwhile, Sic has also ushered in broader space for global semiconductor power device industry. Therefore, developing Sic material has become a choice for global semiconductor companies.
