Airbus and STMicroelectronics (also known as STM) have signed an agreement to cooperate on research and development about power electronics, to support lighter and more efficient power electronics, which will prove essential for hybrid-powered aircraft and full-electric urban air vehicles in the future.  The collaboration will build on evaluations already conducted by both companies, to explore the benefits of wide bandgap semiconductors like silicon carbide and gallium nitride, for aircraft electrification. Wide bandgap semiconductors have superior electrical properties compared to regular semiconductors like silicon. They enable the development of smaller and lighter electronic devices that are more power efficient and
