New SMU capabilities meet power electronics manufacturers ...: Power electronics manufacturers are increasingly

Power electronics manufacturers are increasingly turning to compound materials, including silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN), to create the newest high power electronics. These materials offer much higher power density, smaller size, better high temperature performance, higher frequency response, lower leakage, and lower ON resistance than traditional silicon, for greater operating efficiency. Compound semiconductor technologies aren’t as mature as silicon technology, which challenges those responsible for designing and characterizing these devices, as well as for those involved in quality assurance, failure analysis, and process monitoring. However, while now returning to growth after years of stagnation, semi power device manufacturers are realizing the test instrumentation they've been using for many years no longer meets their new product development requi...
