Several industrial applications such as space exploration, aerospace, automotive, the downhole oil and gas industry, and geothermal power plants require specific electronic systems under extremely high temperatures. For the majority of such applications, silicon-based technologies (bulk silicon, silicon-on-insulator) are limited by their maximum operating temperature. Silicon carbide (SiC) has been recognized as one of the prime candidates for providing the desired semiconductor in extremely high-temperature applications. In addition, it has become particularly interesting owing to a Si-compatible process technology for dedicated devices and integrated circuits. This paper briefly introduces a variety of SiC-based integrated circuits for use under extremely high temperatures and covers the technology trend of SiC CMOS devices and processes including the useful implementation of SiC ICs.
