Junction Barrier Schottky Diodes Help Eliminate Diode Switching Losses

Mon, 05/24/2010 - 5:59am
Cree announced what it asserts are the industry's first commercially available Z-Rec 1700-V Junction Barrier Schottky (JBS) diode products.  Leveraging silicon carbide's unique characteristics to virtually eliminate diode switching losses, these diodes are targeted at high-voltage power-conversion applications in motor-drive, wind-energy and traction systems. Initial products in the 1700-V Series include 10-A and 25-A JBS diodes in die form, ready for integration into 1700-V power modules ranging from 50 to 600-A. According to the company, the new 1700-V JBS series can increase the efficiency, reliability and longevity of power systems while also reducing the overall system size, weight and cost.
