Wolfspeed 1700V SiC MOSFET in optimized package

Featured Product from Richardson RFPD


Part number: C2M0080170P

Wolfspeed extends its leadership in SiC technology by introducing two 1700V SiC discrete MOSFETs in optimized packing with wide creepage and clearance distance between drain and source (~8mm) thereby providing extra electrical isolation suitable for high pollution environments.

The package includes a separate kelvin source pin which reduces the source inductance found in traditional TO-247-3 packages and can reduce the switching losses by as much as 30%. The newly released products are available in 45mΩ (C2M0045170P) and 80mΩ (C2M0080170P) and are designed for newly evolving applications requiring a 1500V blocking capability.

Designers can reduce component-count and simplify designs by moving from multi-level topologies to simpler two-level topologies made possible by the improved switching performance and higher blocking capability. The device features low on-resistance combined with a low gate charge, making it ideally suited for solar boost converters, DC-DC applications as well as AC-AC converters.
