Silicon Carbide (SiC): Ideal Technology for Higher Switching Frequency, Efficiency, and More

Silicon Carbide (SiC) is the ideal technology for higher switching frequency, higher efficiency, and higher power (>650 V) applications. Target markets and applications include:

• Industrial—motor drives, welding, UPS, SMPS, induction heating
• Transportation/automotive—EV battery charger, onboard chargers, H/EV powertrain, DC–DC converter, energy recovery
• Smart energy—PV inverter, wind turbine
• Medical—MRI power supply, X-ray power supply
• Commercial aviation—actuation, air conditioning, power distribution
• Defense—motor drives, auxiliary power supplies, integrated vehicle systems

SiC MOSFET and SiC Schottky Barrier Diode product lines from Microsemi increase your system efficiency over silicon MOSFET and IGBT solutions while lowering your total cost of ownership by enabling downsized systems and smaller/lower cost cooling.
