I read an appropriate article on wireless power in EDN

Gave the MIT crap 2 sentences, more than it deserves. And EDN is free,
delicious and nutricious ;-D

I'm anxiously waiting for my E-paper and Silicon Carbide Mosfets! 600
degree operating temperature, and four times the breakdown voltage!


	Poorly written paper by an alleged "technical editor".  I get EDN
but rarely look at the editorial matter.  E-paper is nonsense but very
high power SiC MOSFETS have been in use for specialized applications -
very high power high voltage high frequency power amplifiers for radar is
an example with which I'm familiar - but too expensive for commercial work
as other devices, IGN}BT's for example, perform as well for most purposes
and are more amenable to high-volume/low-cost production.  Silicon carbide
power rectifier diodes are in commercial use and relatively inexpensive.


Way way off topic!
