Benefits of CoolSiC MOSFETs in Bi-Directional Inverter Applications - July 2021
With the move to renewable energy, there is an increased focus not only on generation but also storage, to make the most of the intermittent supply from wind and solar. Batteries are the common...

SiC Schottky diodes target micro-solar inverters

Targeted at micro-solar inverters as well as voltage multiplier circuits used in X-ray, laser and particle generator power supplies, the SiC rectifiers from GeneSiC Semiconductor are available in the 650 to 3300V range.

The 650V/1 A; 1200V/2 A and 3300V/0.3A Schottky rectifiers feature zero reverse recovery current that does not change with temperature.

The 3300V devices are claimed to offer relatively high voltage in a single device, to reduce voltage multiplication stages in typical high voltage generator circuits, through the use of higher AC input voltages. The switching characteristics allow can reduce or even eliminate  voltage balancing networks and snubber circuits, claims the company.

The SMB (DO-214AA) over-molded package has an industry-standard form factor for surface mount assemblies.
