1200V SiC MOSFETs for industrial power conversion
Toshiba launched five 1200V silicon-carbide (SiC) MOSFETs using its third generation technology to boost the energy efficiency of high-voltage industrial applications.
The 1200V SiC MOSFETs can be are used in equipment such as EV charging stations, photovoltaic inverters, industrial power supplies, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), and bidirectional or half-bridge DC-DC converters.
Improving the on-resistance x gate-drain charge (RDS(on) x QGD) figure of merit by more than 80% boosts both conduction and switching performance in power-conversion topologies.

In addition, the new devices contain the innovative embedded Schottky barrier diode (SBD), proven in the previous generation. The embedded SBD enhances the reliability of SiC MOSFETs by overcoming internal parasitic effects to maintain a stable device RDS(on).
The devices have a gate-source voltage range from -10V to 25V which enhances flexibility to operate in various circuit designs and application conditions. The gate-threshold voltage (VGS(th)) range from 3.0V to 5.0V, ensures predictable switching performance with minimal drift and permits a simple gate-driver design.
The third generation SiC MOSFETs available now comprise the TW015N120C, TW030N120C, TW045N120C, TW060N120C, and TW140N120C. The devices have RDS(on) values from 15mΩ to 140mΩ (typical, at VGS = 18V) and drain-current ratings from 20A to 100A (DC at TC=25°C).
All the devices are in full production and ready to order from distributors, in the standard TO-247 power package: TW015N120C, TW030N120C, TW045N120C, TW060N120C, and TW140N120C
