May 15, 2014 – Cree announces all-SiC 300A, 1.2kV half-bridge module. Packaged in industry-standard 62mm housing, the module reduces energy loss due to switching by more than five times compared to the company's equivalent silicon solution. The all-SiC 62mm half-bridge module’s switching efficiency and performance allow designers to reduce the amount of magnetic and cooling elements, delivering double the power density and a lower system cost while also reducing end user cost of ownership. Offering a simplified two-level topology that is feasible at higher frequencies, the module can also eliminate the need to invest in multi-level silicon-based solutions. The SiC power module is available with multiple gate driver options and is pin compatible to standard 62mm half-bridge modules, including IGBT modules rated at 450A or more.
Priced at $451 each for 1,000-unit quantities.
