ROHM introduces new 4th-generation SiC MOSFETs for EV powertrains

ROHM Semiconductor has announced its 4th-generation 1,200-volt SiC MOSFETs optimized for EV powertrain systems, including the main drive inverter, as well as power supplies for industrial equipment.

ROHM says that the new SiC MOSFETs deliver low ON resistance with high-speed switching performance, contributing to greater miniaturization and lower power consumption in a variety of applications, including automotive traction inverters and switching power supplies. 

Bare chip samples will be available starting in June 2020, and discrete packages will be offered in the future.

    Calling all EEs: take the link to Source: ROHM below the charts. A more in depth description of the SiC advances is there and it’s worth reading. Wow, much lower Rds(on) with no loss in short circuit withstand times AND lower Cgd parasitic capacitance leading to 50% lower switching losses, too! The easiest heat to dissipate is the heat you never make.
