During the last decade, a growing number of applications demanding higher power electrical consumption have emerged in some industrial sectors such as in the military, automotive or space ones. Consequently, electrical components with higher temperature range and rating voltage operation are needed. In addition, the good thermal characteristics of Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium Nitride (GaN) allow the fabrication of devices suitable for working in extreme conditions.
