Cree Announces SiC Power Module Portfolio
Wolfspeed WolfPACKT module family enables accelerated production of high growth mid-power technologies
Cree has announced the launch of its Wolfspeed WolfPACK power modules, extending its range of solutions and ushering in a new era of performance for a diverse range of industrial power markets, including electric vehicle fast charging, renewable energy and energy storage, and industrial power applications.
Using 1200V Wolfspeed MOSFET technology, the new modules deliver maximum efficiency in easy-to-use packages that allow designers to significantly increase efficiency and performance with smaller, more scalable power systems.
The new SiC modules maximise power density while simplifying designs in a standard form factor to significantly accelerate the production and rollout of next-generation technology for a wide range of rapidly growing industrial markets, including off-board charging and solar energy solutions. The offering bridges the gap between single die discrete components and high-ampacity module solutions, giving today's design engineers a wide breadth of portfolio options for design requirements using Wolfspeed SiC.
“The introduction of the Wolfspeed WolfPACK power modules extends our power portfolio to cover the broad spectrum of high voltage power applications, which will help an array of high-growth industries transform as the global transition from silicon to SiC continues to accelerate,” said Jay Cameron, senior vice president and general manager, Wolfspeed Power. “Maximising power density while minimising design complexity is essential for engineers working in the mid-power range, and the new modules simplify layouts to help accelerate production of EV fast charging and solar infrastructures.”
The modules are available in half-bridge and six-pack configurations with a variety of on-resistance options.
