CYPRESS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. recently released a new FMF400DY-24B silicon carbide (SiC) power module. The 400A, 1200V Dual SiC MOSFET Module features an anti-parallel, low Vf, zero recovery loss, SiC SBD (Schottky Barrier Diode). The module packs new designs into a current industry standard footprint (62mm x 108mm) for medical power supplies and general industrial applications. Designed for Vgs(on)=15V, the module is compatible with standard IGBT gate drivers and can be integrated seamlessly into existing mechanical setups for easy upgrades from Si IGBT technologies.
The module uses Mitsubishi Electric’s second-generation SiC MOSFET chip technologies, ideal for applications requiring high switching frequencies. The SiC module reduces power loss by approximately 70% compared to a Si IGBT of the same rating.
“This new module is in a classic package, with the latest technology inside for superior functionality and flexibility,” said Adam Falcsik, senior product manager of Power Device Group, Mitsubishi Electric US. “The FMF400DY-24B adds to Mitsubishi Electric’s growing line of SiC products.”
In addition to superior efficiency, the module complies with Directive 2011/65/EU and (EU) 2015/863 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS) in order to comply with critical environmental regulations. The module reinforces Mitsubishi Electric’s core technology vision by contributing to a smarter and more sustainable society.
