Motor Drive

Our SiC MOSFETs and Schottky Diodes run faster and cooler and use less energy than any silicon solution at roughly the same cost.

Overview

Wolfspeed SiC Solutions for Motor Drives

Electric motors began development in the 1700s and have since become ubiquitous, powering everything from children’s toys to factory robots to 200-mph bullet trains. When it comes to high-power industrial motors, engineers now have the opportunity to build smaller, faster, and more powerful drivers for motors in the most demanding of applications.

Motor drives, powered by Wolfspeed SiC

Performance and reliability are critical when designing motor drives for industrial environments. Wolfspeed SiC MOSFETs and Schottky diodes enable higher efficiency and faster switching speeds than silicon-based solutions, which translates to smaller, lighter heat sinks and passive components that can save cost while maintaining performance and quality.

Keep weight and system size down without sacrificing performance

Wolfspeed Silicon Carbide (SiC) enables motor drive engineers to build systems that use fewer overall components, saving on both costs and overall system size and weight. These reductions can eliminate the need for a separate enclosure to house the drive circuitry away from the motor, instead allowing the drive to be mounted on or integrated into the motor itself—saving even more cost while improving performance.

Components Built for the Motor Drive Challenge

When it comes to increasing efficiency and reducing power losses, Wolfspeed Silicon Carbide (SiC) stands alone — and for motor drive system designs, maximizing performance is key.
