Four SiC MOSFET-based Power Modules

April 20, 2015

Vincotech_SiC Mosfet_PR_PhotoRichardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability from stock and full design support capabilities for four new 1200V SiC MOSFET-based power modules from Vincotech.

The devices represent a new generation of Vincotech’s 1200V SiC MOSFET-based power modules, and they are designed specifically for solar, UPS and battery management applications.

The modules are available in two versions. The first is a flow3xPHASE 0 SiC three-phase inverter module with 3x BUCK/BOOST and split output topology. The second version is the flow3xBOOST 0 SiC with three-channel boost circuits. The three circuits are not connected, giving design engineers the flexibility to use them as individual circuits or to attach shunt resistors for current sensing. The flow3xPHASE 0 SiC configuration may be used as a bidirectional DC-to-AC three-phase inverter or a three-channel bidirectional DC-to-DC inverter.

Both versions feature the latest generation of SiC MOSFET switches designed for ultra-fast switching frequencies >100 kHz. They are able to achieve >99 % peak efficiency at fPWM of 64 kHz. Equipped with integrated DC capacitors, these new flow 0 SiC modules provide ultra-low inductance.

According to Vincotech, additional key features of the new power modules include:

  • Three-phase inverter with split output for better switching behavior (reduced turn on energy and cross-conduction suppression)
  • Three-channel booster
  • ROHM™, CREE™ Power SiC MOSFET and Power SiC Schottky diode
  • Temperature sensor
