Littelfuse has made an incremental $15m investment in silicon carbide (SiC) diode and MOSFET power device start-up Monolith Semiconductor of Round Rock, TX, USA. This follows a prior investment in December 2015. Monolith notes that silicon carbide enables power devices to operate at higher switching frequencies and temperatures versus conventional silicon technology, allowing inverters and other energy conversion systems such as motor drives to be operate with significantly improved energy efficiency and reduced system cost.
