SiC diodes have been in server supplies for more than 10yrs now. It was really the first market segment to adopt the technology given the instant efficiency increase by simply dropping in the SiC device into the boost diode slot in the PFC circuitry. Bridgeless PFC technology is the next step for efficiency increase and that will involve using SiC and GaN FETs i.e. more $$ for the wide bandgap device suppliers :-)
