Silicon carbide (SiC) is a wide bandgap semiconductor that in recent years has successfully established itself in several power applications, demonstrating superior quality compared to traditional components based on silicon technology. SiC-based power discretes offer relevant properties including high switching frequencies and operating temperatures, low conduction losses, high reliability and robustness combined with improved thermal management. Thanks to these properties, the use of these components in power circuits allows for a significant increase in both efficiency and power density, with a consequent reduction in costs and size of the solution.

WolfPACK, the family of power modules recently introduced to the market by Wolfspeed, is a choice for designers who intend to increase efficiency and power density in their circuits while maintaining a very small footprint. vailable in two half-bridge and two six-pack configurations, the Wolfspeed WolfPACK modules integrate SiC MOSFETs suitable for medium power (10 – 100 kW) topologies in a very small space…
