Because the cost of SiC Schottky diodes is still high, and Silicon rectifiers that rival them are now commercially available, engineers should revisit their PFC boost converter designs to see if they can reduce cost and/or improve performance by taking advantage of the performance of the latest Silicon devices, because SiC Schottky diodes have not made Silicon rectifiers obsolete.
These behave like normal silicon rectifiers until a small signal is applied to the control electrode, at which time conduction occurs.

The NCP4330 features drive outputs for series FETs and free-wheeling synchronous FETs, to deliver higher efficiency than silicon rectifiers generally used for this purpose.
Unlike silicon rectifiers, this characteristic varies very little with increasing temperature, which enables operation at high frequency with minimum power loss during the reverse recovery time over a broad temperature range.
