WeEn Semiconductors unveiled new families of silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFETs and Schottky Barrier Diodes (SBDs) in TSPAK packaging at this year’s PCIM Europe exhibition and conference. The company has also used the event to showcase for the first time a comprehensive range of integrated SiC power modules in Nuremberg, from June 11-13, 2024. 

WeEn Semiconductor’s new TSPAK MOSFET and SBD devices address the demand for high-performance, compact and reliable power management in applications ranging from automotive charging and on-board charger applications to photovoltaic (PV) inverters and high-power-density power supplies (PSUs).

Offering a variety of configuration options for maximum design flexibility, the company’s new SiC modules are ideal for applications such as EV charging, energy storage systems, PV inverters, motor drives, industrial PSUs and test instrumentation.

Originally developed for automotive applications, TSPAK devices combine innovative top-side cooling capability with low thermal impedance to deliver enhanced thermal performance. By removing the PCB thermal resistance from the thermal dissipating path, the Junction-Ambient thermal resistance improves by 16-19%.

This supports high reliability by enabling a greater number of power cycles than conventional packaging as well as providing the increased power densities demanded by compact system designs. Low circuit inductance and low EMC noise help to improve performance and reduce filtering requirements. The WeEn Semiconductors family of TSPAK MOSFETs features 650V, 750V, and 1200V options with resistances ranging from 12mΩ to 150mΩ. TSPAK SBDs are available with current ratings of 10 to 40A in 650V, 750V, and 1200V variants.

Visitors to WeEn’s stand in Hall 9, booth 538, will have the first opportunity to explore the company’s extensive range of SiC power modules. With a wide range of topology options, including half-bridge, four-pack, six-pack, and MPPT booster configurations, the power modules support voltages ranging from 650V to 1200V. Depending on the option chosen and special designs, modules incorporate a variety of advanced features including synchronized chip current sharing, integrated temperature sensors, topside cooling structures and the latest clip-bond technologies.
