Infineon expands 1200V CoolSiC diode family
Adds six new devices in a D²PAK real 2-pin package
Infineon Technologies AG has expanded its CoolSiC Schottky diode 1200 V portfolio by adding six devices in a D²PAK real 2-pin package.
Using SMD packages, designs can be more compact and more cost effective. Moreover, the new D²PAK real 2-pin package eliminates the middle pin to offer 4.7 mm creepage and 4.4 mm clearance distance.Compared to a standard D²PAK package, this enhances safety margins, according to Infineon.
The diodes are suitable for applications such as industrial power supplies, and DC charging stations, uninterruptable power supplies, and solar string inverters.
The new devices use Infineon’s CoolSiC Schottky diode 1200 V technology G5, which offers best-in-class forward voltage and high surge current capability. Additionally, it prevents reverse recovery losses and allows for temperature-independent switching behavior. These features can streamline designs with lower cooling requirements and smaller magnetics when used at higher switching frequency. The CoolSiC Schottky diodes 1200 V G5 are rated from 2 A to 20 A and represent the industry’s broadest portfolio in a D²PAK real 2-pin package.
By using the new SiC diodes in the D²PAK real 2-pin package, designers are able to reach a new level of power density and reliability compared to Si solutions. Combined with other Infineon products, such as CoolSiC MOSFETs 1200 V or TRENCHSTOP 1200 V IGBT6 and EiceDRIVER gate driver ICs, the new portfolio offers a complete solution for highest efficiency designs.
