Wolfspeed claims the industry’s first 1700-V 45mOhm SiC MOSFET to enable smaller and higher-efficiency next-generation power conversion systems. It is optimized for high-frequency power electronics applications, including renewable-energy inverters, battery charging systems, and three-phase industrial power supplies.
Key features of the new C2M0045170D include high-speed switching with low capacitances, avalanche ruggedness, fast intrinsic diode with low reverse recovery (Qrr), and it is easy to parallel and simple to drive. The Mosfet is available in a TO-247-3 package.
Wolfspeed also offers a 33.5 x 37.6mm basic gate driver board (CRD-001) for evaluating the new device.
