Markets and Technology
In applications from 20 W to 20 MW, and with device voltages from 650 V to 6.5 kV, GeneSiC silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFETs and Schottky MPS™ diodes drive high-speed, high-efficiency power conversion across diverse markets including EV, industrial automation, solar, wind, grid, motor drives and defense. High-volume, high-quality shipments ensure application performance, reliability and uptime availability.
Trench-Assisted Planar Gate: No-Compromise Technology
SiC MOSFETs offer superior conductivity and switching performance compared to silicon (Si) due to their ‘wide bandgap’ characteristics and high electric-field strength. However, traditional designs using legacy planar or trench techniques must compromise between manufacturability, performance, and/or reliability.
GeneSiC’s patented trench-assisted planar gate design is a no-compromise, next-generation solution; high-yield manufacturing, fast and cool operation, and extended, long-life reliability.
High Voltage Pioneers
GeneSiC have pioneered robust, high-voltage, high-efficiency SiC MOSFETs which are critical for reliable, harsh environment, high-power applications
- Unique, advanced, integrated 6.5 kV technology
» Double-implanted metal oxide semiconductor (DMOSFET)
» Monolithically-integrated Junction barrier Schottky (JBS) rectifier
» Superior high-power performance
- Higher efficiency bi-directional performance
» Temperature independent switching
» Fast (low switching loss) and cool (low conduction losses)
» Longer-term reliability
» Easy-to-parallel for high power (VTH stability)
Widest Range of SiC MOSFETs 750 V – 6.5 kV
• How well does the MOSFET conduct current (measured in RDS(ON) )?
• How efficiently does the device ‘switch’ (measured by energy loss, or EXX )?
For each question, we must understand the answer in both ‘hard-switch’ and ‘soft-switch’ topologies, and under tough high-temperature and high-speed conditions. Combined, a high-temperature, high-speed (frequency) figure-of-merit (FoM) is critical for system performance and reliability.
- GeneSiC vs. competitor SiC FET
» 1200 V, 20 mΩ, TO-247-4L
» Higher drain current
» Lower conduction losses
» Cooler operation
- GeneSiC vs. competitor SiC FET
» 1200 V, 40 mΩ, D2pak in half-bridge
» 150 kHz switching = ~10x faster than Si IGBT
» 30% lower FET loss vs. other SiC
» 25°C cooler operation = 3x longer lifetime
SiC Schottky MPS™ Diodes
Merged-PIN Schottky (MPS) Diodes combine two beneficial features from the PIN and Schottky diode. The PIN sustains excessive surge currents with low leakage, while the Schottky element offers low forward voltage drop and fast-switching characteristics. Target applications include PFC, Boost, and high-voltage, higher-power motor drives.
