Silicon Carbide to Displace Silicon in EV Batteries by 2020

Silicon Carbide to Displace Silicon in EV Batteries by 2020

Wide bandgap materials such as silicon carbide and gallium nitride are the best options to meet the growing battery demands of electric vehicles, and silicon carbide is expected to displace silicon in EVs by 2020, according to Lux Research. Economics are in favor of wide bandgap materials. For a Tesla … Read more »

Lux: High-Efficiency Semiconductor Costs to Drop

Wide-band-gap semiconductor materials such as gallium nitride, or GaN, offer far higher efficiencies than traditional silicon but cost significantly more. But by 2020 GaN costs will drop enough for it to become competitive based on performance gains, according to a Lux Research report. Bulk GaN is very expensive today, costing … Read more »
