Mitsubishi Electric launches SiC power semiconductor modules for home ... - Semiconductor Today

Mitsubishi Electric launches SiC power semiconductor modules for home appliances, industrial equipment, railcar traction systems Tokyo-based Mitsubishi Electric Corp says that it has begun shipping three new types of silicon carbide (SiC) power module for home appliances, industrial equipment and railcar traction systems. The modules, which use Schottky barrier diodes (SBDs) made with SiC, are expected to reduce the size, lower the weight and raise the efficiency of inverters in power electronics devices. The hybrid SiC DIPPFC (dual-in-line package power-factor correction) – a transfer-mold-type IPM (intelligent power module) with for PFC circuits - for home appliances, together with a hybrid SiC-IPM for general industry applications and a hybrid SiC module for railcar traction systems, are being exhibited at the Power Conversion Intelligent Motion Europe (PCIM Europe 2013...
