1700V Silicon Carbide Schottky Diode

Wolfspeed has been working with Silicon Carbide (SiC) for over 30 years. Wolfspeed created the world’s first GaN HEMT in Silicon Carbide in 1998, the first of many innovations in the use of SiC, which would lead Wolfspeed to the forefront of the electronic systems industry by providing the market with the most advanced Silicon Carbide (SiC) solutions for industrial power and EV charging applications.

Wolfspeed’s Silicon Carbide technology continues to offer the most advanced versions of wide bandgap semiconductor devices that support outstanding efficiency in real-world application. Most recently, the Wolfspeed engineers have made considerable developments in their advanced Schottky diode designs with the 1700V SiC Schottky diode.

Wolfspeed’s 1700V Silicon Carbide Schottky Diode Features

Wolfspeed’s 1700V SiC Schottky diode is an improvement upon the structural and technical components of its previous design iterations, delivering a truly high-performing semiconducting device. This design features extremely low switching losses made possible by reverse recovery of nearly zero and best-in-class forward voltage drop across the entire operating temperature range.

Accordingly, Wolfspeed’s 1700V SiC Schottky diode offers electronic systems higher efficiencies, smaller designs, cooler components, faster-switching speeds, and lower operational costs than those manufactured with a silicon bipolar device. Additionally, Wolfspeed’s advanced design integrates these features into the new TO-247-2 package option to make it the most ideal choice for corrosive environments.

Wolfspeed’s 1700V Silicon Carbide Schottky Diode Benefits in Applications

Wolfspeed partners with the world’s most talented designers to build a new future of faster, smaller, lighter, and more powerful electronic systems. Wolfspeed’s 1700V SiC Schottky diode offers an extensive range of current ratings so that designers can incorporate this semiconducting device into a wide variety of applications. The flexibility of the 1700V SiC Schottky diode makes it an excellent device for use in power rectifiers, circuit, solar cells, clamp diodes, and radio frequency mixer and detector applications. The implementation of these diodes will lead to improvements in the performance and efficiency of these types of systems.

Wolfspeed manufactures the world’s highest quality and most reliable bandgap semiconductors, putting to use 28 years of experience in the electronics industry. Wolfspeed remains committed to delivering Schottky diodes with higher frequencies, higher efficiency and lower operating temperatures without requiring additional system modification. Wolfspeed offers SiC Schottky diodes in a variety of current ratings, voltage ratings and package options to meet any application requirement.

Modeling with SpeedFit

Wolfspeed’s SpeedFit is a powerful online simulator that allows designers to quickly evaluate different power conversion topologies and Silicon Carbide (SiC) devices. The platform is best utilized early in a design cycle to analyze design tradeoffs between different topologies, estimate semiconductor losses and junction temperatures, as well as identifying the best Silicon Carbide (SiC) MOSFETs and Silicon Carbide (SiC) diodes to use in a given design. This saves a great deal of time by reducing the need to sort through datasheets and calculate device losses to select an optimized device. The SpeedFit tool supports numerous power conversion topologies for DC-DC, AC-DC, and DC-AC to support a wide range of applications. This whitepaper will explore some of the topologies including newly added options and demonstrate how SpeedFit can be used to evaluate different device packages and paralleling options.
