Selected Topics-0025_Market for Automotive SiC Components Enjoys Soaring Growth as Evolution of New Energy Vehicles Gains Speed
The automotive market is witnessing a surge of interest in silicon carbide (SiC) power semiconductor devices. Presently, SiC power devices still lag behind traditional silicon-based IGBTs in terms of cost and reliability. Nonetheless, nearly all automotive OEMs and tier-1 suppliers have either begun adopting SiC for the components used their electrified vehicle models, or they are developing related products. On the whole, the activities of OEMs and suppliers demonstrate the growing importance of SiC-related technologies within the automotive industry.
In terms of applications, SiC power devices are mainly intended for the main traction inverter, onboard charger, DC/DC converter, and compressor within the HVAC system. In particular, SiC power devices are regarded as critical for the performance of the main

Today, using smartphones to take photos has become a popular way for people to record and share everyday memories. Camera performance has also become an important factor for consumers when deciding to purchase a new smartphone. However, unlike traditional digital single-lens reflex cameras (DSLRs), smartphones are designed to be lightweight and slim. Therefore, adopting a larger CMOS image sensor (CIS) or a heavier lens assembly to improve photoshoot is not practical. To overcome this physical limitation, advanced image signal processors (ISPs) and innovative computational photography algorithms are used to significantly enhance the imaging quality of smartphone cameras. These solutions can effectively compensate for the shortcoming of not being able to incorporate larger optical components into a smartphone camera.
