Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new SiC MOSFET evaluation kit from Cree, Inc.

The KIT8020CRD8FF1217P-1 evaluation kit can be used to demonstrate the high performance of Cree’s 1200 V SiC MOSFETs and SiC Schottky diodes and includes:

  • Two C2M0280120D Cree SiC 1200V, 80m?, TO-247-3 MOSFETs
  • Two C4D20120D Cree SiC 1200V, 20A, TO-247-3 Schottky diodes
  • Evaluation board with an Avago gate driver
  • A compatible heat sink
  • All mounting hardware
  • User Manual

The new evaluation kit can be easily configured for several topologies, such as basic phase-leg configurations. The evaluation board may be used:

  • To evaluate the SiC MOSFET performance during switching events and steady state operation;
  • To configure different topologies with SiC MOSFETs and SiC diodes;
  • To perform functional testing with SiC MOSFETs (e.g., double pulse test to measure switching losses (Eon and Eoff));
  • As a PCB layout example for driving SiC MOSFETs and SiC diodes; and
  • As a gate drive reference design for a TO-247 SiC MOSFET.

The full reference design layout and schematic are available by request.
