INDUSTRY-LEADING FORWARD VOLTAGE VS TEMPERATURE

Wolfspeed’s new 6th-generation (C6D) Silicon Carbide Schottky diode family offers best-in-class forward voltage drop (VF = 1.27V @ 25°C and 1.35 V @ 125°C) across the entire operating temperature range, significantly reducing conduction losses and enabling extremely high system level efficiency. Based on our industry-leading 150mm wafer technology, the C6D diode family increases power density in the most demanding power conversion applications, such as Power Factor Correction (PFC) and High Voltage DC/DC Converters.

HIGHEST EFFICIENCY IN REAL-WORLD APPLICATIONS

In high power applications like this boost converter, every fraction of a percent matters.
