Modeling and simulation of the SiC growth processes, Physical Vapor Transport (PVT), Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD), are sufficiently mature to help building new process equipment or up-scaling old ones. It is possible (i) to simulate accurately temperature and deposition distributions, as well as doping (ii) to quantify the limiting phenomena, (iii) to understand the important role of different precursors in CVD and hydrogen additions in PVT. The first conclusion of this paper is the importance of the "effective" C/Si ratio during CVD epitaxy in hot-wall reactors and its capability to explain the doping concentrations. The second conclusion is the influence of the C/Si ratio in alternative bulk growth technique involving gas additions.
