Hybrid Silicon Carbide Power Modules
Power modules with IGBTs and silicon carbide Schottky diodes
High switching frequencies and increased power output and efficiency
SEMIKRON offers hybrid silicon carbide power modules in MiniSKiiP, SEMITRANS, SEMiX 3 Press-Fit and SKiM63/93. Latest IGBT technology is combined with SiC Schottky diodes of the leading suppliers to increase the switching frequency and reduce power losses at the same time.
The hybrid silicon carbide power modules are available from 50A to 600A in 1200V. Covered topologies are 6-packs and half bridges.
SiC Schottky free-wheeling diodes have virtually no switching losses and reduce the turn-on losses of the IGBT drastically. With these effects higher switching frequencies can be reached in the same module package which efficiently lowers the filter efforts on the output side of e.g. solar inverters, UPS systems or high frequency power supplies. Additionally higher output powers compared to standard silicon power modules can be realized.
