IXYS Introduces Silicon Carbide High Power Diodes

The SiC diode modules are suited to applications such as MHz switch mode power supplies, high frequency and resonant converters as well as rectifier circuits
IXYS Corporation's Colorado division has introduced the SS150 and SS275 series high power SiC diodes.

Three diode configurations provide designers with flexible connection and layout options.

Packaged in low inductance, surface mount DE Series package, these products provide excellent switching performance.

The SS150 and SS275 are both available in 600V, 10A and 1200V, 5A ratings. Standard internal configurations include:

    TI – Triple Independent - no common connections

    TA – Triple Anode - anodes are tied together

    TC – Triple Cathode - cathodes are tied together

The SS150 and SS275 SiC diode modules are ideal for applications such as MHz switch mode power supplies, high frequency and resonant converters as well as rectifier circuits.

The use of SiC allows extremely fast switching, high frequency operation, with zero recovery and temperature independent behaviour. Coupled with our low inductance RF package, these diodes can be utilised in any number of fast switching diode circuits or high frequency converter applications.

SS150 & SS275 Features:

    Surface Mount Package

    600V, 10A and 1200V, 5A Available

    Zero Reverse Recovery

    Zero Forward Recovery

    High Frequency Operation

    Temperature Independent Behavior

    Low Inductance

    Positive Temperature Coefficient for Vf

“The SS150 and SS275 High Power SiC Diode Modules allow designers more flexible design options with high frequency applications," comments Stephen Krausse, General Manager of IXYS Colorado.

The SS150 and SS275 high power SiC diode modules are available directly from IXYS Colorado.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

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

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. 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. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove 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.
