Montreal, Canada – March 31, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently announced immediate availability of STMicroelectronics’ SIC MOSFETs SCTx0N120 Series.
Silicon Carbide is the most mature wide-bandgap semiconductor material currently available in the market. STMicroelectronics is among the first manufacturers to have introduced high-voltage silicon carbide (SiC) Power MOSFETs, and the first one achieving the industry’s highest temperature rating of 200°C in a molded package.
SiC is widely regarded as instrumental in order to build on the path of continuous improvement in the critical areas of system energy efficiency, miniaturization and cost.
Target applications include solar inverters, high-frequency power supplies, power factor correctors (PFCs) as well as fully electric and hybrid electric vehicles (EV and HEV).
These SiC Power MOSFETs are the next step vs traditional silicon metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs) and insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs), for all applications in power conversion running at a frequency ≥ 100 kHz. Additionally, the fully-guaranteed 200C TJ(max) opens new frontiers in terms of thermal management, reliability and robustness.
Future Electronics currently has STMicroelectronics’ SiC MOSFETs SCT30N120 (1,200V, 100mΩ) and SCT20N120 (1,200V, 290 mΩ) in stock, with immediate shipping availability.
