Hosted by the Energy Club

Adam Barkley, Solutions Architect in the Power Electronics Systems R&D team at Wolfspeed, will be presenting an overview of recent advances in Silicon Carbide (SiC) MOSFET power semiconductor devices and packaging technology.  The talk will provide a short introduction to Wolfspeed, some history of the evolution of SiC power devices over the last 20+ years, and insight into how this wide bandgap technology is enabling many of today’s power electronics applications ranging from renewable energy to electric vehicles.   Several of the key electrical characteristics of the SiC MOSFET will be reviewed and compared to competing Silicon power semiconductor devices. Significant focus will be placed on the system-level benefits achievable when utilizing this technology; generally some combination of improved energy efficiency, smaller size, and lighter weight. Next, several medium voltage (3.3kV to 10kV) MOSFET devices will be presented which promise some radical new possibilities in the grid-connected power electronics and renewable energy spaces.  Finally, Adam will discuss the Cree | Wolfspeed internship program and encourage participation in the Career Fair. Questions and interactivity are highly encouraged throughout the talk.
