Half-bridge SiC power module enables compact lightweight systems

A half-bridge SiC power module from Wolfspeed is now being distributed by Cree Company’s Richardson RFPD.

The CAS325M12HM2 power module is configured in a half-bridge topology consisting of seven 1.2 kV 25 mOhm C2M SiC MOSFETs and six 1.2 kV 50 A Z-Rec Schottky diodes per switch position. The companion gate driver (CGD15HB62LP) is designed for integration with the module to fit within the 62 mm mounting footprint.

The CAS325M12HM2 features ultra-low loss and low (5 nH) inductance, ultra-fast switching operation, zero reverse recovery current from the diode, zero turn-off tail current from MOSFET, fail-safe device operation, ease of paralleling, and high-temperature packaging.

This module enables compact, lightweight systems by offering high-efficiency operation, reduced thermal requirements, and improvements in power density. It is designed for high-efficiency converter/inverter, motor and traction drive, and smart-grid/grid-tied distributed generation applications.
