The focus of Phase II will be the development, fabrication, and testing of a highly integrated version of this new class of SiC-based high power density radar power supplies. The final Phase II prototype will achieve the stated power density, efficiency, and functionality goals of this program by combining the proposed advanced packaging technology, as well as the high energy density passives and novel control methods.
