Abstract
This SBIR Phase I project seeks to develop an advanced, flexible, robust, high-power density, high-voltage (600 V), solid-state circuit protection device (SSCPD) through the incorporation of silicon carbide (SiC) device technology, the implementation of advanced power packaging, and novel fault detection and protection schemes. The proposed SiC-based SSCPD will address the present and future needs of many Army applications, specifically targeting the present needs of the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) and other future Army vehicles, e.g., Ground Combat Vehicle (GCV).
