SpeedVal Kit™ Modular Evaluation Platform

Wolfspeed SpeedVal Kit Modular Evaluation Platform - Full Kit Shot
The industry’s most versatile modular silicon carbide evaluation platform
Technical Support ForumConfigure My Kit
Wolfspeed’s SpeedVal Kit™ Modular Evaluation Platform speeds the transition from silicon to silicon carbide (SiC) with a flexible set of building blocks for in-circuit evaluation of system performance. Quickly evaluate and optimize the high-speed dynamic switching performance of Wolfspeed silicon carbide MOSFETs paired with your choice of range of gate driver options from industry-leading partners. Perform high-power thermal testing to evaluate operation at real operating points. An accurate modular spice model for each block in the system allows engineers to compare test data with simulation and model their own system. SpeedVal Kit™ consists of a motherboard, power daughter card, gate driver card, an optional control card, and other optional accessories.

Flexibility Without Compromise

SpeedVal Kit’s unique card-edge connection to the power daughter card enables users to change silicon carbide devices in seconds while maintaining a low-inductance connection to the DC bus, meaning testing that took weeks can be completed in minutes. The versatile power daughter cards come in a range of packages from surface mount TOLL devices through TO-247 packages.

Design with Confidence

SpeedVal Kit supports a range of voltages, package types, and power topologies to support many applications and enables testing silicon carbide devices, gate drivers, and controls at real operating conditions. This system enables users to:

  • Measure Switching Loss (Eon, Eoff, Qrr)
  • Select from a range of gate driver options to suit your needs
  • Adjust Rg to optimize switching behavior
  • Evaluate discrete Silicon Carbide MOSFETs <1200V
  • Operate as a buck or boost converter using the Half-Bridge Motherboard

Explore The Options

Click on the individual components of the system below to learn more and see the available options for each. Components may be purchased separately or use the SpeedVal Kit Configurator to build your complete test system.
