High-Performance SiC FETs

UnitedSiC’s UJ3C and UF3C series of silicon carbide FETs are based on a unique cascode configuration, where a high performance SiC fast JFET is co-packaged with a cascode optimized Si-MOSFET to produce the only standard gate drive SiC device in the market today. The UJ3C series is built for “ease of use” and the perfect solution when upgrading from an existing silicon-based device.  The UF3C series provides faster switching speed and lower switching loses, with Kelvin package options, for high-performance designs.

Features

  • 650V to 1200V
  • Excellent body diode performance (Vf < 2V)
  • Drive with any Si and/or SiC gate drive voltage
  • High performance cascode configuration
  • Superior thermal performance
  • Integrated ESD and gate protection
  • Efficient 4-lead Kelvin package (UF3C series)

UnitedSiC’s UJ3C and UF3C silicon carbide FETs, based on a unique cascode configuration, are high performance G3 SiC fast JFETs co-packaged with a cascode optimized MOSFET to produce the only standard gate drive SiC device in the market today. The high switching speed, fast body diode, high temperature operation, low RDS(ON) and ruggedness of SiC FETs (cascodes) make them an excellent solution for all switching circuit topologies.

Features

  • Excellent body diode performance (Vf < 2V)
  • Drive with any Si and/or SiC gate drive voltage
  • High performance cascode configuration
  • Superior thermal performance
  • Integrated ESD and gate protection
  • NEW 4-lead Kelvin package (-K4S part number suffix)

Reliability & Package Data

How do SiC Cascodes work?

Turn On

MOSFET turns “On”

  • MOSFET VGS > MOSFET VTH

  • MOSFET VDS ~ 0 V

 

JFET turns “On”

  • MOSFET VDS ~ 0 V, JFET VGS ~ 0 V

  • JFET VTH is −6 V typical

JFET VGS = −MOSFET VDS

Low voltage MOSFET controls a 1.2kV JFET

Turn Off

MOSFET turns “Off”

  • MOSFET VGS < MOSFET VTH

  • MOSFET “Off”, VDS rises > 6 V

 

JFET turns “Off”

  • High Voltage Across JFET VDS
