Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. recently unveiled a new Silicon Carbide (SiC) power module FMF400DY-24B, including an anti-parallel, low Vf, zero recovery loss, SiC SBD (Schottky Barrier Diode). The module features new designs into an industry-standard package footprint (62mm x 108mm) for medical power supplies and general industrial applications.
The 400A, 1200V Dual SiC MOSFET module is designed for Vgs(on)=15V, compatible with standard IGBT gate drivers and can be incorporated into existing mechanical layouts for easy upgrades from Si IGBT technologies.
The module uses Mitsubishi Electric’s second-generation SiC MOSFET chip technologies that are ideal for applications requiring high switching frequencies. The SiC module reduces power loss by approximately 70% compared with an equivalently rated Si IGBT.
“This new module is in a classic package footprint, with the latest technology inside for superior function and flexibility,” said Adam Falcsik, senior product manager of Mitsubishi Electric US’s Power Device group. “The FMF400DY-24B adds to Mitsubishi Electric’s growing lineup of SiC products.”
In addition to higher efficiency, the module is compliant with the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) directive 2011/65/EU and (EU) 2015/863 to meet critical environmental regulations. The module furthers Mitsubishi Electric’s core technology vision by contributing to a smarter and more sustainable society.
