How ST's 2nd-gen Silicon-Carbide MOSFETs take efficiency to a next level: 15 kW Power Factor Conversion reference design.

Join ST’s one-hour webinar and discover the key benefits of 2nd generation STPOWER Silicon-Carbide MOSFETs specifically for a Power Factor Correction application. Using our 15kW, 3 phase Vienna rectifier reference design (STDES-VIENNARECT), you will see how our STPOWER SiC MOSFETs can improve the performance of your application in terms of energy efficiency, system form factor and overall cost.

You will learn

  • How to reach efficiency that is above 99%
  • How to take advantage of the 650V SiC MOSFETs' high switching frequency to optimize feedback and control circuitry
  • How to adopt the latest technology to re-think your power coversion systems


  • SiC MOSFET characteristics overview
  • Overview of ST's 2nd-generation STPOWER Silicon-Carbide MOSFETs
  • Our roadmap of SiC solutions for industrial applications
  • Basics on power factor correction and how to optimize designs for efficiency
  • Getting started with our reference design (STDES-VIENNARECT) for high-power three-phase AC/DC rectifier applications based on the Vienna topology

There will be a live Q&A session at the end of the webinar where ST's experienced engineers will be available to answer your questions.
