Experts on the topic present the latest research on materials, components and methods of reliability and evaluation for WBG power semiconductors and suggest solutions to pave the way for integration. As wide bandgap (WBG) power semiconductors, SiC and GaN, are the latest promising electric conversion devices because of their excellent features, such as high breakdown voltage, high frequency capability, and high heat-resistance beyond 200 C, this book is a timely resource on the topic. Examines the key challenges of wide bandgap power semiconductor packaging at various levels, including materials, components and device performance Provides the latest research on potential solutions, with an eye towards the end goal of system integration Discusses key problems, such as thermal management, noise reduction, challenges in interconnects and substrates.
