Toshiba Extends Family Of 650V SiC Power Devices
With analysts predicting significant growth in the SiC power device market, Toshiba is expanding its SBD line-up to meet an anticipated spike in demand
6, 8 and 10A Devices Added to Silicon Carbide Schottky Barrier Diode Range
Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc has announced that it has extended its family of 650V silicon carbide (SiC) Schottky Barrier Diodes (SBD). The TRS6E65C, TRS8E65C and TRS10E65C are 6, 8, and 10A devices, respectively. These SBDs join Toshiba's 12A device, the TRS12E65C, which entered volume production in 2Q 2013. With analysts predicting significant growth in the SiC power device market, Toshiba is expanding its SBD line-up to meet an anticipated spike in demand.
Low forward voltage drop and a very fast switching action make SBDs well-suited to applications including power conditioners for photovoltaic power generation systems, solar inverters, uninterruptible power supplies and DC-DC converters. SBDs can also act as replacements for silicon diodes in switching power supplies, where they are much more efficient.
SiC power devices offer more stable operation than current silicon devices - even at high voltages and currents - as they significantly reduce heat dissipation during operation. They meet diverse industry needs for smaller, more effective communications devices and suit industrial applications ranging from servers to inverters and trains to automotive systems.
The Toshiba SBD range features a maximum reverse recovery current (IRRM) of 90 microamperes @ 650V. All devices are housed in TO-220 packages, with additional packages scheduled to be added at a future date.
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
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.
