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.
