Infineon Releases CoolSiC™ MOSFET 1700 V SMD

June 1, 2020 Perry Cohen

Infineon Technologies announced it is adding to is CoolSiC™ MOSFET portfolio by offering a 1700 voltage class with its trench semiconductor technology. The company previously added a 650V to its portfolio earlier this year.

The 1700V surface-mounted device (SMD) has physical characteristics of silicon carbide (SiC), which offers low switching and conduction losses. According to the company, it targets auxiliary power supplies in three-phase conversion systems such as motor drives, renewables, charging infrastructure, and HVDC systems.

In cases when low-power applications operate below 100W, many designers prefer single-ended flyback topology. The topology in the CoolSiC MOSFETs 1700 V in SMD package is enabled for DC-link connected auxiliary circuits up to 1000 V DC input voltage.

Additionally, its blocking voltage eliminates concerns of overvoltage margin and reliability of power supplies. It features low device capacitances and gate charges for transistors of the voltage class.
