Power Semiconductor Market Introduction & Overview
Power semiconductors are components utilized to convert energy from one form to another at different stages between the points of energy generation and energy consumption. They can handle large currents and high voltages. They have a different structure when compared with regular semiconductors, allowing them to handle high voltages and large currents without getting damaged. Failures may occur due to high temperatures due to the heat generated from large power handling. Power semiconductors are primarily utilized in power conversion, such as changing voltages and frequencies and changing DC to AC & AC to DC. Power semiconductors play a significant role in accurately driving motors from low to high speeds, providing power to power grids from solar cells with reduced power losses, and providing a reliable source of electricity for various home appliances and electrical equipment.
The power semiconductor market is driven by factors such as increasing demand for power semiconductors in consumer electronic devices and the increasing adoption of renewable energy and electric vehicles. Moreover, the focus of mobile & consumer electronics is to deliver processing performance at the lowest possible power and price. Silicon-based semiconductors are ideal power semiconductors with each new generation delivering smaller & faster transistors with low-power demands.
