RS Components (RS), a trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), a global omni-channel solutions partner for industrial customers and suppliers, now stocks ON Semiconductor’s latest 1200V-rated MOSFETs. Based on silicon-carbide (SiC) technology, these power discretes are able to push the performance envelope.
The new N-channel SiC MOSFETs support accelerated switching speeds (with rise times of as little as 10ns). Exhibiting on-resistance figures going down to 20mΩ alongside industry-leading gate charge values, they are subject to minimal power losses. Exceptionally robust, these devices can cope with ultra-high current surge pulses. They have a dielectric breakdown field strength that is an order of magnitude greater than for equivalent silicon MOSFETs, with a working temperature range of -55°C to +175°C being covered.
The 1200V SiC MOSFET devices are supplied in compact TO247 packages and surface mount D2PAK. They are Pb−free and fully conform with RoHS environmental directives, as well as being 100% UIL tested. Key applications include uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), electric vehicle charging stations, DC/DC converters, motor control systems, and solar inverters. AEC Qualified variants available.
The N-channel SiC MOSFETs are now available from RS South Africa and across Sub-Saharan Africa.
