The high start-up costs associated with fabricating SiC wafers and the high cost of finished devices (as much as five to ten times more than silicon power devices) means many companies are still cautious about entering the SiC marketplace. This is not surprising. As with any new semiconductor technology, as the technology progresses from early stage to mainstream adoption, manufacturers must create solutions that can reliably produce high-yield wafers at high volumes to achieve affordability.
