Published on: 19/06/2018

IXYS silicon carbide package options available at GD Rectifiers

IXYS Silicon Carbide Power MOSFETs by GD Rectifiers

Silicon Carbide (SiC) is known as a semiconductor material offering very fast switching, very low on-state and switching losses and increased power density. These features can be used achieving smaller and more efficient converters following the trend to higher bus voltages. Silicon carbide is used in various applications including: high efficient DC-DC converters, solar inverters, UPS systems and supercharge solutions.


IXYS Silicon Carbide Power MOSFETs

IXYS offers silicon carbide solutions based on IXYS’ own ISOPLUS packaging technology offering transfer molded packages like ISOPLUS i4 or SMPD with dies mounted on DCB (direct copper bonded) substrates featuring isolation towards heatsink. ISOPLUS SMPD is also made for SMD placement facilitating efficient mounting for cost reduction. IXYS’ MiniBLOC (SOT-227) package is a solution based on unique thermal design of high thermal conductivity AIN ceramic substrates.

All of these IXYS Silicon Carbide Power MOSFET packages allow for dense layouts following the markets demand for smaller inverter designs, higher power density and efficiency.
