Mouser: What is a Wide Band Gap?

A band gap is the amount of energy needed for electrons and holes to move from the valence band to the conduction band. Wide-bandgap (WBG) semiconductors are semiconductor materials with a larger band gap than conventional materials, like silicon. The primary WBG materials used today are based on gallium nitride (GaN) and silicon carbide (SiC). 

With onsemi's help, Mouser will go through explaining how Wide-bandgap semiconductors work, for what purpose they are used, and where you can find them.
