SiC JFETs – The ideal circuit protection solution

The UJ3N series are high-performance SiC normally-on JFET transistors with options ranging from 650V to 1700V. This series exhibits ultra-low on resistance (RDS(ON)), as low as 25mΩ, and low gate charge (QG) allowing for low conduction and reduced 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

  • 650/900/1200/1700 V device options
  • Low on-resistance: RDS(on) maximum of 25mΩ
  • Current limiting: rapid current decrease due to self-heating, limiting I2t
  • Normally-on JFETs: VG(th) invariant with temperature
  • Peak TJ > 600°C
