Mitsubishi Electric launches SiC Power Semiconductor modules

Mitsubishi Electric announced today the launch of three types of silicon carbide (SiC) power modules for home appliances, industrial equipment and railcar traction systems. The modules, which use schottky-barrier diodes (SBD) made with SiC, are expected to reduce the size, lower the weight and raise the efficiency of inverters in power electronics devices.

Hybrid SiC-IPM for
The hybrid SiC DIPPFC (Transfer-mold-type IPM with for power-factor correction (PFC) circuits) for home appliances and hybrid SiC modules for railcar traction system will be exhibited at Power Conversion Intelligent Motion Europe 2013, which will be held in Nuremberg, Germany from May 14 to 16.
