Further, the band gap is about three times that of Si, making possible operation at higher temperatures than for Si devices. At present, due to constraints imposed by the thermal resistance of packages, operation is guaranteed at 150°C to 175°C, but as package technology advances, guaranteed operation at 200°C and above will become possible.
