Evaluation board combines 1700V SiC MOSFET with control IC

July 08, 2016 // By Julien Happich
ROHM has announced a new 1700V SiC MOSFET optimized for industrial applications, including manufacturing equipment and high-voltage general-purpose inverters.

The SCT2H12NZ provides the high breakdown voltage required for auxiliary power supplies in industrial equipment. Conduction loss is reduced by 8x over conventional silicon MOSFETs, contributing to greater energy efficiency. And combining with ROHM’s AC/DC converter control IC designed specifically for SiC MOSFET drive (BD7682FJ-LB) will make it possible to maximize performance and improve efficiency by up to 6%. This allows smaller peripheral components to be used, leading to increased miniaturization.

An evaluation board combining the two, BD7682FJ-LB-EVK-402 is available now.
