New MOSFETs for energy conversion applications

03-07-2024 | Mouser Electronics | Power

Mouser now ships the CoolSiC G2 MOSFETs from Infineon Technologies. The series is the next generation of SiC technology, opening a new chapter in power systems and energy conversion in SiC MOSFET trench technology for photovoltaic inverters, energy storage systems, EV charging, power supplies and motor drive applications.

The MOSFETs offer the highest quality standards in all common power scheme combinations (AC/DC, DC-DC, and DC/AC) and further advance the company's unique XT interconnection technology (e.g., in discrete housings TO-263-7, TO-247-4) to improve semiconductor chip performance and thermal capability. The CoolSiC G2 650V and 1200V MOSFETs improve key performance for stored energy and charging by up to 20% without compromising quality or reliability while improving overall energy efficiency and decarbonisation. The G2's thermal capability is 12% better, boosting the CoolSiC to a new level of SiC performance with a fast switching capability that produces 5-30% lower power losses in all operation modes depending on the load condition, allowing significant energy savings.

The device's new generation of SiC technology provides accelerated design of more cost-optimised, compact, reliable, and highly efficient systems, with energy harvesting savings and reduced CO2 for every watt in the field.
