ROHM’s New 4th Generation SiC MOSFETs Featuring the Industry’s Lowest ON Resistance

Wednesday, June 17, 2020 - 2:30pm

To solve these various challenges, designers urgently need SiC power devices capable of providing high withstand voltage with low losses.

Key Points: 
  • To solve these various challenges, designers urgently need SiC power devices capable of providing high withstand voltage with low losses.
  • ROHM, a pioneer in SiC, began mass producing SiC MOSFETs ahead of the industry in 2010.
  • For power semiconductors there is often a trade-off relationship between lower ON resistance and short-circuit withstand time, which is required to strike a balance for achieving lower power losses in SiC MOSFETs.
  • In addition, significantly reducing the parasitic capacitance (which is a problem during switching) makes it possible to achieve 50% lower switching loss over ourprevious generation of SiC MOSFETs.
