Nearly every electronic item you encounter on a day-to-day basis contains semiconductors. They are found in everything from your smartphone or tablet, to even higher power applications such as server farms and solar arrays.
More specifically, semiconductors are a key part of the components that make up electronic systems, including ICs (integrated circuits) diodes, transistors, and MOSFETs (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistors), to name a few. These systems are among the many building blocks that make up electronic systems, and the existence of semiconductors makes all of this possible.
Semiconductors have the unique property of possessing electrical conductivity somewhere between a conductor and an insulator. It is this property that makes devices such as transistors, diodes, and MOSFETs possible — and from those devices come the electronic systems we all rely on every day of our lives. While there are several different semiconductors in use today, silicon carbide offers unique solutions and key performance advantages over other commonly used materials.
