Merged-PiN-Schottky diodes feature low built-in voltage to harness high efficiency levels

GeneSiC Semiconductor, a developer of SiC power semiconductor devices, announces the availability of 5th generation (GE*** series) SiC Schottky MPS rectifiers designed to offer superior price-performance index, surge current and avalanche robustness, and high quality manufacturing.

“GeneSiC was one of the first SiC manufacturers to commercially supply SiC Schottky rectifiers in 2011. After more than a decade of supplying high-performance and high-quality SiC rectifiers in the industry, we are excited to release our 5th generation of SiC Schottky MPS (Merged-PiN-Schottky) diodes that offer industry-leading performance in all aspects to meet the high efficiency and power density goals in applications like server/telecom power supplies and battery chargers, " said Siddarth Sundaresan, VP of Ttchnology at GeneSiC Semiconductor.

According to the company the feature that makes 5th Generation (GE*** series) SiC Schottky MPS diodes stand out is the low built-in voltage (also known as knee-voltage).

"It enables lowest diode conduction losses at all load conditions - crucial for applications demanding high-efficiency energy usage. In contrast to other competitor SiC diodes also designed to offer low-knee characteristics, an additional feature of our Gen5 diode designs is that they still maintain that high level of avalanche ruggedness that our customers have come to expect from GeneSiC's Gen3 (GC*** series) and Gen4 (GD*** series) SiC Schottky MPS," said Sundaresan.

Devices are available from authorised distributors.



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
