Silicon carbide - The latest breakthrough in high-voltage switching and rectification

ST’s portfolio of silicon carbide devices includes 650 / 1200 V SiC MOSFETs featuring the industry’s highest junction temperature rating of 200 °C for more efficient and simplified designs, and SiC diodes ranging from 600 to 1200 V which feature negligible switching losses and 15% lower forward voltage (VF) than standard silicon diodes.


Main characteristics:

  • Industry’s highest operating junction temperature (Tj max) of 200 °C for reduced cooling requirements and heatsink
  • Low on-state resistance over the entire temp range to 200 °C for reduced cooling requirements with a higher system efficiency
  • Extremely low power losses
  • Small increase of on-resistance versus temperature
    Very easy to drive (resulting in smaller component count)
  • High operating frequency for reduced switching losses and smaller and lighter systems
  • Very fast and robust intrinsic body diode
