RS Components introduces SiC MOSFETs from ON Semiconductor ready to meet future efficiency and power density expectations

New N-channel devices offer compelling array of characteristics

LONDON, UK, 24 September 2020RS Components (RS), a trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), a global omni-channel solutions partner for industrial customers and suppliers, now stocks ON Semiconductor’s latest 1200V-rated MOSFETs. Based on silicon-carbide (SiC) technology, these power discretes are able to push the performance envelope.

The new N-channel SiC MOSFETs support accelerated switching speeds (with rise times of as little as 10ns). Exhibiting on-resistance figures going down to 20mΩ alongside industry-leading gate charge values, they are subject to minimal power losses. Exceptionally robust, these devices can cope with ultra-high current surge pulses. They have a dielectric breakdown field strength that is an order of magnitude greater than for equivalent silicon MOSFETs, with a working temperature range of -55°C to +175°C being covered.

The 1200V SiC MOSFET devices are supplied in compact TO247 packages and surface mount D2PAK. They are Pb−free and fully conform with RoHS environmental directives, as well as being 100% UIL tested. Key applications include uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), electric vehicle charging stations, DC/DC converters, motor control systems, and solar inverters. AEC Qualified variants available.

The N-channel SiC MOSFETs are shipping now from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
