Fuji Electric Introduces Silicon Carbide Hybrid Module for North American Market

Manufacturer’s Latest Innovation Boasts High Switching Speeds and Increased Efficiency

EDISON, N.J. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 29, 2015 — Power electronics manufacturer Fuji Electric has announced the introduction of a new Silicon Carbide Hybrid Module for the North American market, which allows for smaller, lighter system packages due to its higher switching speed and increased efficiency over full Silicon Power Modules. The new module, which is the latest generation product in the company’s extensive Semiconductor portfolio, began shipping to customers earlier this month and boasts temperature stability and virtually no reverse recovery loss.

“The high performance and superior efficiency of the SiC module results in a reduction of total energy consumption, which in turn decreases both system costs and operating expenses over time,” said Phil Charatz, President and CEO of Fuji Electric Corp. of America. “The use of a hybrid module is an effective way to take advantage of this new technology while waiting for full Silicon Carbide modules to reach mass adoption.”

The 6MSi100VB-120-50, a 100A/1200V 6-pack SiC Hybrid module, is ideal for a wide variety of power electronics applications, including alternative energy, medical imaging, motor drive, and UPS. It achieves 30% lower losses at 16kHz under standard operating conditions, which is a significant improvement over the performance of full Silicon modules.

“One of the benefits of migrating towards the use of Silicon Carbide in our products is the flexibility we have configuring the technology for a variety of products and applications,” added Charatz. “Fuji Electric’s Engineering and Development teams are hard at work developing new, innovative products to support our customers’ evolving needs.”
