An all SiC power module rated at 100A current handling and 1200V blocking voltage has been introduced by semiconductor solutions provider Cree.

The module includes SiC MOSFETs and SiC Schottky diodes in a 50mm half-bridge configuration rated to 150°C maximum junction temperature. The SiC components enable the module to be operated at exceptionally high switching frequencies that can reduce the size, weight and cost of the power conversion system.

The new power module has demonstrated up to 100kHz switching frequency. Target applications include high power converters, industrial motor drives, solar inverters and uninterruptible power supplies.
