Silicon Carbide wafers an help researchers develop much simpler and more efficient power devices that could provide rapid charging of batteries for toys, consumer, industrial and military applications.

UniversityWafer, Inc. distributes affordable single crystal silicon carbide wafers.

Researchers of Unmanned aerial vehicles, electric vehicles and other e-mobility applications will all find benefit in inexpensive silicon carbide wafers.

UniversityWafer, Inc. along with its partners is now distributing silicon carbide substrates up to 150mm in diameter of all grades for all applications.

Silicon carbide (SiC) wafers work great in power devices that have to be engineered into tight spaces. Researchers now have the flexibility to design much smaller Power devices used in aerospace including Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and automotive. Unlike conventional silicon based power devices, SiC allows for miniaturization of current Silicon devices. SiC devices can withstand higher electric fields resulting in extremely low power loss at higher temperatures. For battery operated UAVs and electric vehicles SiC’s low power loss, and reduced weight equates to longer battery life and more efficient operations.

Estimates from electric formula-one racing see a 30% increase in power inverters electric performance.

Future SiC applications include smaller speed controllers for the remote-control aircraft and UAV hobbyists. These stronger, smaller speed controllers can work with at higher voltage and currents in compact spaces. For UAV drone racing SiC power devices hold great promise for their increased performance, maximized speed and increased endurance.

The heat properties of SiC improve overall electronics so you can reach higher performance with your electric motors.

MIT has conducted research in micro-turbine, engine-on-chip technology using silicon. Studies have proven that Silicon Carbide substrates handles the heat produced by this miniature turbine more efficiently.

Silicon Carbide wafers an help researchers develop much simpler and more efficient power devices that could provide rapid charging of batteries for toys, consumer, industrial and military applications.

By distributing inexpensive Silicon Carbide wafers UniversityWafer, Inc. believes it can help speed along research and development.
