5th Generation 650V SiC Schottky MPS™ Diodes for Best-in-Class Efficiency

Gen5 650V SiC Schottky MPS™

DULLES, VA, May 28, 2021 — GeneSiC Semiconductor, a pioneer and global supplier of Silicon Carbide (SiC) power semiconductor devices, announces the availability of 5th generation (GE*** series) SiC Schottky MPS™ rectifiers that are setting up a new benchmark with their superior price-performance index, industry-leading surge current and avalanche robustness, and high quality manufacturing.

“GeneSiC was one of the first SiC manufacturers to commercially supply SiC Schottky rectifiers in 2011. After more than a decade of supplying high-performance and high-quality SiC rectifiers in the industry, we are excited to release our 5th generation of SiC Schottky MPS™ (Merged-PiN-Schottky) diodes that offer industry-leading performance in all aspects to meet the high efficiency and power density goals in applications like server/telecom power supplies and battery chargers. The revolutionary feature that makes our 5th Generation (GE*** series) SiC Schottky MPS™ diodes stand out among its peers is the low built-in voltage (also known as knee-voltage);it enables lowest diode conduction losses at all load conditions – crucial for applications demanding high-efficiency energy usage. In contrast to other competitor SiC diodes also designed to offer low-knee characteristics, an additional feature of our Gen5 diode designs is that they still maintain that high level of avalanche (UIL) ruggedness that our customers have come to expect from GeneSiC’s Gen3 (GC*** series) and Gen4 (GD*** series) SiC Schottky MPS™” said Dr. Siddarth Sundaresan, Vice President of Technology at GeneSiC Semiconductor.

High-current capable 650V, 1200V and 1700V SiC Schottky MPS™ diodes in mini-module SOT-227 package

DULLES, VA, May 11, 2019 — GeneSiC becomes a market leader in high-current capable (100 A and 200 A) SiC schottky diodes in SOT-227 mini-module

GeneSiC has introduced GB2X50MPS17-227, GC2X50MPS06-227 and GC2X100MPS06-227; the industry’s highest current rated 650V and 1700V SiC schottky diodes, adding to the existing 1200V SiC schottky diode mini-module portfolio – GB2X50MPS12-227 and GB2X100MPS12-227. These SiC diodes replace silicon-based ultra-fast recovery diodes, enabling engineers to build switching circuits with greater efficiency and higher power density. Applications are expected to include electric vehicle fast chargers, motor drives, transportation power supplies, high power rectification and industrial power supplies.

In addition to the isolated base-plate of the SOT-227 mini-module package, these newly released diodes feature low forward voltage drop, zero forward recovery, zero reverse recovery, low junction capacitance and are rated for a maximum operating temperature of 175°C. GeneSiC’s third generation SiC schottky diode technology provides industry leading avalanche ruggedness and surge current (Ifsm) robustness, combined with high quality automotive qualified 6-inch fabrication and advanced high reliability discrete assembly technology.

These SiC diodes are pin-compatible direct replacements to other diodes available in the SOT-227 (mini-module) package. Benefitting from their lower power losses (cooler operation) and high frequency switching capability, designers can now achieve greater conversion efficiency and greater power density in designs.
