In this proposed program, the APEI team will design, build, and test a multi-channel fully-integrated, high-temperature (250 degrees C), high speed (<100 s), SiC-based SSPD demonstrator by the end of the program. The proposed SiC-based SSPD will combine APEI, Inc."s advanced high temperature power packaging technology (which will be capable of operating at junction temperatures in excess of 250 degrees C) with the latest SiC devices in order to develop a SSPD that follows a system architecture and vision provided by our strategic partner.
