Introduction & Scope
INTRODUCTION In simple terms, power electronics is a collective term for solid-state devices that convert electric power from one form to another: direct current to alternating current, low frequency to high frequency and transmission voltages to line voltage, to name some examples. Power electronics are practically as old as electronics itself. Conversion and conditioning of power is fundamental to its effective utilization. Power electronics help in achieving this objective. Electronics, by definition, deals with electron-size circuits.
Employing devices and components based on nanoscale design principles to condition high voltages and currents requires effective blending of design principles of electrical circuits and the behavior of electronic components. The fundamental objectives driving innovation in power electronics are thermal management, form factor efficiency and cost-effective synthesis. This is not too different from the larger electronics industry. However, implications of mismanaging any of these objectives are unquestionably graver for power electronics as compared to the larger electronics domain.
The power electronics industry is engaged in identifying technologies and materials that can keep pace with user demand for superior performance at least incremental pricing. Silicon, a material that has dominated power electronics for some time, appears to be nearing the limits of its physical abilities to support the further evolution of superior products. Stakeholders are therefore looking at alternative materials. Compound semiconductors provide a ready solution. Wide-bandgap characteristics make for superior thermal management in some cases and better frequency response in others. These improvements do come at a cost. The notoriously cost-conscious semiconductor supply chain is understandably wary of large-scale overhaul. The challenge boils down to stepwise introduction of new materials and associated processes without greatly upsetting the existing applecart.
This report attempts to present a quantitative account of the stakeholder journey in addressing the challenge mentioned above. Certain definitions and explanations are in order.
Discretes, as the name suggests, are stand-alone components, while modules are arrays/arrangements of multiple discretes. This report uses the terms components and discretes interchangeably. This report forecasts the market size for discretes and modules. Systems are functional blocks comprised of discretes and modules. They perform a specific activity such as alternating current (AC)-AC, AC-direct current (DC), DC-DC and DC-AC conversion. Systems are available in embedded as well as stand-alone external formats. This report does not forecast the market size for systems, although discussing them is inevitable in the context of the report.
