SiC Power Semiconductor Modules By Mitsubishi Electric launches – May 09, 2013– Tokyo, Japan (Techreleased) – Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced today the launch of three types of silicon carbide (SiC) power modules for home appliances, industrial equipment and railcar traction systems. The modules, which use schottky-barrier diodes (SBD) made with SiC, are expected to reduce the size, lower the weight and raise the efficiency of inverters in power electronics devices.
SiC Power Semiconductor Modules Details
The hybrid SiC DIPPFC for home appliances and hybrid SiC modules for railcar traction system will be exhibited at Power Conversion Intelligent Motion Europe 2013, which will be held in Nuremberg, Germany from May 14 to 16. *DIPPFC: Transfer-mold-type IPM with for power-factor correction (PFC) circuits
