White Paper: Deciphering Data Sheets

2021-10-16T16:35:15-05:00

During the component selection process of hardware design, it’s typical to quickly review datasheets and user guides before committing to a specific chipset. However, depending on the application, it may benefit the designer to explore some of these features in greater detail. Download this white paper and learn how to “decipher” datasheets for Wolfspeed SiC MOSFETs and Schottky diodes, which have many important details that should not be overlooked...

White Paper: Dynamic Characterization and Measurement Methods for SiC MOSFETs

2021-10-11T14:28:26-05:00

With increased voltage ratings, lower operating temperatures, higher-current capabilities, and better recovery characteristics, silicon carbide (SiC) has enabled several applications to maximize efficiency and power density while keeping costs at a minimum; however, it’s important to fully characterize these components and their performance in order to take full advantage of SiC technology.

White Paper: Designing for Scalability in High-Power Applications

2021-10-14T14:19:14-05:00

The Wolfspeed SiC product portfolio includes discrete components ranging from 650 V to 1700 V that provide flexibility and low-cost, multi-source solutions, and the WolfPACK family of press-fit, baseplate-less designs that offer industry-standard, mid-range power options -- enabling designers to scale power appropriate to their application and optimize power density, design simplicity, system costs, and reliability…

Application Note: Reducing Size, Noise, and Field Failures of Transportation APUs

2021-02-08T12:05:02-06:00

As vehicle electrification proliferates the consumer EV segment, other forms of transportation are also chasing the global macrotrend. Today, designers are finally able to extract disruptive system-level benefits of SiC technology to shrink the size, noise, and field failures of auxiliary power units (APUs) in transportation vehicles.

White Paper: Fast-Charging Electric Vehicles – SiC Delivers the Most Power from the Smallest Charger

2021-10-14T14:12:05-05:00

EV charging infrastructure must not only be fast and ubiquitous, but it must be powerful, efficient, smaller, and cost-effective. Silicon carbide (SiC) is the technology best equipped to meet these requirements, while also preparing fast-charging infrastructure for future requirements such as bidirectional charger design...

White Paper: Reliability and Ruggedness Considerations for Integrating SiC in EVs, Other Power Designs

2021-02-07T13:51:57-06:00

Silicon carbide (SiC) devices that facilitate high-voltage operations at low switching losses because of wide-bandgap (WBG) material start their accelerated evolution and adoption in automotive, industrial, aerospace, and defense applications. These SiC products promise to improve power density and system efficiency, thus saving the design’s size, cost, and weight...
