Cree’s power module enables higher performance, more reliable and lower cost power conversion systems

PCIM Europe 2013, USA: Cree Inc. is introducing the industry’s first commercially available silicon carbide (SiC) six-pack power module in an industry standard 45mm package.

When replacing a silicon module with equivalent ratings, Cree’s six-pack module can reduce power losses by 75 percent, which leads to an immediate 70 percent reduction in the size of the heat sink or a 50 percent increase in power density.

The new six-pack SiC module unlocks the traditional design constraints associated with power density, efficiency and cost, thereby enabling the designer to create high performance, reliable and low cost power conversion systems. When compared to state-of-the-art silicon modules, the SiC 1.2 kV, 50A modules deliver performance equivalent to silicon modules rated at 150A.
