Based on the authors' years of extensive experience, this is an authoritative overview of Wide Bandgap (WBG) device characterization.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – September 2018 – Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (www.epc-co.com) announces the publication by the Institution of Engineering and Technology of Characterization of Wide Bandgap Power Semiconductor Devices co-authored by EPC Senior Applications Engineer, Dr. Edward A. Jones. This textbook provides essential tools to assist researchers, advanced students, and practicing engineers in performing both static and dynamic characterization of WBG devices, particularly those based on using silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) power semiconductors. The book presents practical considerations for real applications and includes examples of applying the described methodology.

Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC), Fairchild Semiconductor, GeneSiC Semiconductor, ROHM Semiconductor, and Transphorm tell Andy Extance and Power Dev’ how they’re turning module and system makers toward wide bandgap devices.
Wide-bandgap materials, such as GaN and SiC, are enabling a new generation of power switching devices that switch faster and with fewer losses than the venerable silicon MOSFET, resulting in smaller, more efficient power supplies.
