Optimized for high-voltage, high-power environments
Wolfspeed’s 1700V Silicon Carbide (SiC) Schottky Diodes (introduced January 2019), incorporate advanced 5th-generation technology from Cree’s 150mm production facilities.
With its complementary SiC MOSFETs, Wolfspeed offers the most comprehensive 1700V portfolio in the industry, enabling high efficiency and power density. The C5D family is intended to supersede the original C3D series 1700V diodes. This new series is fully qualified to THB80/HV-H3TRB (85 degree C, 85%RH, -1360V) standards.
Among other applications, these devices are ideal for solar power applications with an operating voltage of 1500V. When used as a boost diode they enable faster switching and lower losses.
