SiC Modules – 10kW up to 350kW

Various connection technologies, wide output power range and highest efficiency are features combined today in SEMIKRON silicon carbide power modules. Both, hybrid and full SiC modules are available in five different packages in 1200V and 1700V, optimised for low inductance and utilizing the unique features of each package.

Silicon Carbide Power Modules Benefits

SEMIKRON hybrid silicon carbide power modules are a solutioneasy to implement for reduced power losses and increasedswitching frequency. They combine the latest IGBT technologywith SiC Schottky diodes.

For efficiencies higher than 99%, a minimum of power losses and maximum output power and power density, full silicon carbide modules have to be used with SiC MOSFET switches. Thanks to the MOSFET's body diode an external anti-parallel diode is not required in all cases, but can be beneficial to increasethe efficiency even further. SEMIKRON supplies power modules with silicon carbide chips of the leading suppliers, tested to the well known SEMIKRON quality and reliability.

Silicon Carbide Power Modules Key Features

  • Increased switching frequencies enable optimisation and cost-down of filter components
  • Reduced power losses lead to increased efficiency and lower system cost and size through smaller cooling devices
  • Latest SiC chips of the leading suppliers
  • Various packages and connection technologies with optimised chipsets for your application

Silicon Carbide Power Modules Applications

Silicon carbide power modules are the perfect technology to create system benefits, both technically and commercially. With the increase of the switching frequency, filter components like chokes in booster applications or the load side filters of power supplies, UPS or solar inverters can be drastically reduced. Additionally the power losses are reduced which leads to savings in cooling lower fan power, smaller heatsinks or the change of a formerly forced cooled application to a convection cooled design. Finally the overall system efficiency can be maximised as well to fulfil the demands of modern power conversion systems.

Hybrid SiC Modules: High Efficiency at High Switching Frequencies

  • Hybrid SiC modules combine fast switching IGBT chips withsilicon carbide Schottky free-wheeling diodes
  • Major reduction of switching losses and efficiency increase
  • Comparison of SKiM93, 1200V, 450A with medium powerIGBT 4 and silicon free-wheeling diodes to IGBT 4 Fast andSiC Schottky free-wheeling diodes:
  • Efficiency increase from less than 98% to 99% at 8 kHz
  • Output power increase by 50% to 130kW at 10kHz

    Full SiC Modules: +150% Power Output at High Switching Frequencies

    • Full SiC modules use the latest generation of SiC MOSFETs, with or without SiC Schottky free-wheeling diodes
    • Maximum reduction of switching losses and reduction of static losses in low load condition thanks to MOSFET characteristic
    • Comparison of MiniSKiiP, 1200V, 20A with low power IGBT 4 and SiC MOSFETs with and without free-wheeling diode:
    • Efficiency increase to more than 99%
    • Output power increase by more than 100%.

    Silicon Carbide Chips of the Leading Suppliers Combined with SEMIKRON Packaging Technology

    • Chip mounting by solder or sinter interconnects for high temperature operation and highest reliability
    • Soldered or solder-free (spring/press-fit) PCB assembly
    • Broad power range in multiple packages
    • Modules with and without baseplate
    • Customer-specific solutions

    Silicon Carbide Power Modules Product Range

    The products cover a power range from 10kW to 350kW in 1200V in five different packages. MiniSKiiP and SEMITOP represent the low power range up to 25kW, both without a baseplate. The MiniSKiiP comes with its well proven SPRiNG Technology as a full SiC 6-pack, with or without SiC Schottky free-wheeling diodes. The SEMITOP 3 can be supplied with press-fit or solder connections as a 6-pack with split output configuration, that can flexibly be utilised in a variety of applications.

    In the medium power range the 62mm module SEMITRANS 3 is available as a hybrid SiC half-bridge with 200A rated current fast IGBT 4 and a full SiC half-bridge with 350A and 500A rated current, with and without free-wheeling diodes. For even higher output currents the SEMiX3p is available as a hybrid SiC module with 600A rated IGBT current as well as the SKIM93 solder-free module as a 6-pack with 450A with fast IGBT. The covered voltage range is now extended with a full SiC SEMITRANS 3 in 1700V with250A rated current, with and without free-wheeling diodes.
