SiC JFETs – The ideal circuit protection solution

The UJN & UJ3N series are high-performance SiC normally-on JFET transistors. This series exhibits ultra-low on resistance (RDSON) and gate charge (QG) allowing for low conduction and switching loss. The device normally-on characteristics with low RDS(ON) at VGS = 0 V is also ideal for current protection circuits without the need for active control.  The devices are also commonly used in series connection with a Si-MOSFET as robust ‘supercascodes’, which give all the advantages of wide band-gap technology with very high operating voltages and easy gate drive.

Features

  • 650 V & 1200 V device options

  • Low on-resistance: RDSon maximum of 80mΩ

  • Current limiting: rapid current decrease due to self-heating, limiting I2t

  • Normally-on JFETs: VTH invariant with temperature

  • Peak TJ > 600°C
