High-current capable 650V, 1200V and 1700V SiC Schottky MPS™ diodes in mini-module SOT-227 package

DULLES, VA, May 11, 2019 — GeneSiC becomes a market leader in high-current capable (100 A and 200 A) SiC schottky diodes in SOT-227 mini-module

GeneSiC has introduced GB2X50MPS17-227, GC2X50MPS06-227 and GC2X100MPS06-227; the industry’s highest current rated 650V and 1700V SiC schottky diodes, adding to the existing 1200V SiC schottky diode mini-module portfolio – GB2X50MPS12-227 and GB2X100MPS12-227. These SiC diodes replace silicon-based ultra-fast recovery diodes, enabling engineers to build switching circuits with greater efficiency and higher power density. Applications are expected to include electric vehicle fast chargers, motor drives, transportation power supplies, high power rectification and industrial power supplies.

In addition to the isolated base-plate of the SOT-227 mini-module package, these newly released diodes feature low forward voltage drop, zero forward recovery, zero reverse recovery, low junction capacitance and are rated for a maximum operating temperature of 175°C. GeneSiC’s third generation SiC schottky diode technology provides industry leading avalanche ruggedness and surge current (Ifsm) robustness, combined with high quality automotive qualified 6-inch fabrication and advanced high reliability discrete assembly technology.

These SiC diodes are pin-compatible direct replacements to other diodes available in the SOT-227 (mini-module) package. Benefitting from their lower power losses (cooler operation) and high frequency switching capability, designers can now achieve greater conversion efficiency and greater power density in designs.
