Richardson RFPD Announces Availability of New Family of 1200V Silicon Carbide Power MOSFETs from Wolfspeed

Proven, reliable third-generation planar MOSFETs with rugged, intrinsic body diode

October 9, 2019 – Geneva, Ill.: Richardson RFPD, Inc. announced today the availability and full design support capabilities for a new family of 1200V SiC power MOSFETs from Wolfspeed, a Cree Company.

Based on third-generation planar MOSFET technology, the new devices include a rugged intrinsic body diode that allows for third-quadrant operation without the need for an additional external diode. According to Wolfspeed, the new product family includes the lowest Rds(on) at 1200V in a discrete package with a flat Rds(on) over temperature.

Wolfspeed designed these third-generation MOSFETs with an increased CGS/CGD ratio for better hard-switching performance. Soft-switching applications can also benefit from the more linear COSS behavior. Designers can reduce component count by moving from silicon-based, three-level topologies to simpler two-level topologies made possible by the improved switching performance

The new devices are suitable for a range of applications, including solar energy systems, EV charging, uninterruptible power supply (UPS), SMPS, motor control and drives, and energy storage.

Additional key features of the 1200V SiC power MOSFETs include:
