The emerging market for Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium Nitride (GaN) power semiconductors is forecast to grow a remarkable factor of 18 during the next 10 years, energized by demand from power supplies, photovoltaic (PV) inverters and industrial motor drives.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced it has completed an agreement to distribute Silicon Carbide power products from Cree Inc. Under the agreement, Richardson RFPD will distribute Cree's SiC Schotty diodes, MOSFETs and power modules worldwide.
AVX Corp., a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has introduced a new series of Schottky barrier rectifier diodes uniquely packaged as lead-less chips. Eliminating the standard lead frame wire bond provides the chip with top-bottom symmetry, which enables better heat transfer, better current handling capability than SOD devices, and fewer mounting problems. Available in several case sizes and a range of current values spanning 0.1A to 8A, the new lead-less chip form Schottky rectifier diodes are ideal for applications including switch mode power supplies, high frequency rectification, portable battery powered devices, and reverse bias protection.

SemiGen Inc. (www.semigen.net), an ISO and ITAR registered RF/Microwave assembly, automated PCB manufacturing, and RF Supply Center, has announced the recent addition of key components to their RF Supply Center’s stockroom. The RF Supply Center is now offering PIN and limiter diodes that meet the most common RF/Microwave design specifications.
AWR Corp. and Modelithics Inc. have announced the release of Version 9.3 of the Modelithics® COMPLETE Library for AWR’s Microwave Office™ high-frequency design software.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. introduced a new high voltage CMOS driver for PIN diodes for use in military and commercial radio applications. The MADR-010574 is designed to work with M/A-COM Tech’s high power and high voltage PIN diodes.
