Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability from stock and full design support capabilities for a new 1.2 kV, 80 m Ω all-SiC six-pack (three-phase) module and associated six-channel gate driver from Cree, Inc.
The CCS020M12CM2 includes C2M™ MOSFETs and Z-Rec™ diodes and features ultra-low loss, high-frequency operation, zero reverse recovery current from the diodes, zero turn-off tail current from the MOSFETs, fail-safe operation, ease of paralleling, and a copper baseplate and aluminum nitride insulator.
The new module enables compact and lightweight systems, offers high efficiency operation, mitigates over-voltage protection, and facilitates reduced thermal requirements and system cost.
The CCS020M12CM2 is ideally suited for a range of applications, including solar inverters, three-phase power factor correction, regenerative drives, UPS and SMPS, and motor drives. It is pin-compatible to the industry-standard EconoPACKTM2 package (45mm).
According to Cree, additional key features of the CCS020M12CM2 include:
- Drain source voltage (VDSmax): 1.2kV
- Total switching energy (ESW) (@ 20A, 150 ºC): 0.48mJ
- On state resistance (RDS(on)) (Typical, VGS=20V, IDS=20A): 80m?
- Package size: 47mm x 108mm
The CGD15FB45P is a six-channel gate driver evaluation fixture for Cree’s 1200V “CM2” series six-pack power modules. According to Cree, it features:
- Isolated power supply
- Direct mount low inductance design
- Short circuit protection
- Over-temperature protection
- Under-voltage protection
The CCS020M12CM2 and CGD15FB45P are also featured on Richardson RFPD’s SiC Tech Hub, a microsite featuring the latest news, product releases, and a broad range of technical resources on silicon carbide.
