We review the history and modern state of silicon carbide and SiC-based devices. Main techniques for growing bulk SiC crystals and epitaxial SiC films are discussed. Epitaxial SiC structures used for post-growth processing are briefly reviewed. The state of the art achieved in developing SiC-devices is presented. The main problems that occur in developing SiC-equipment and prospects for designing and developing such equipment are analyzed.
