Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the launch of its SiC Tech Hub, a micro-website featuring the latest news and new product releases related to Silicon Carbide (SiC) technology.

SiC offers significant advantages in high power, high voltage applications where power density, higher performance and reliability are of the utmost importance. Industrial applications like solar inverters, welding, plasma cutters, fast vehicle chargers and oil exploration are a few examples that benefit from the higher breakdown field strength and improved thermal conductivity that SiC offers over silicon (Si) material.

Richardson RFPD has an extensive SiC offering, including a selection of of Schottky diodes, MOSFETs and IGBTs from industry-leading manufacturers Cree, Microsemi, Vincotech and Powerex. The SiC Tech Hub brings together these products with exclusive design resources focused on this emerging technology.

The wide range of design resources offered on the SiC Tech Hub includes application notes, brochures, datasheets, presentations, selector guides, supplier documentation, technical articles and videos.

"As we continue to expand our design support resources, a centralized resource for silicon carbide was the next logical step," said Dave Rossdeutcher, Director, Global Marketing - Energy, Power & Interconnect, Richardson RFPD. "With the participation of our key suppliers, the SiC Tech Hub will provide focused SiC content to support our energy and power market customers and their design activities with this rapidly-expanding technology."

Visitors to the SiC Tech Hubmay also sign-up for emailed product updates, links to technical presentation videos, and other resources like white papers and technical articles as soon as they are published.

The SiC Tech Hub is the latest Tech Hub from Richardson RFPD and follows the successes of the M2M Tech Hub, the Avionics & Radar Tech Hub, and the TriQuint GaN Tech Hub, which debuted in 2012.
