We are on the cusp of the breakout of the first major adopter of SiC device tech - EV charging stations.

From what I can tell, the move of SiC into electric vehicles themselves is happening faster than anticipated. I am sure that Tesla's use of a SiC inverter is influencing the design choices of other models that are in the design phase.

Now, I'd like to hear something similar from the initial deployments of 5G. I am fairly sure that GaN on SiC will find its way into mmWave macro base stations but I am less sure about what is happening with small cell base stations....and that the ladder is likely to make up a large portion of 5G deployments.
