Mitsubishi Electric to Launch N-series 1200V SiC-MOSFET
By reducing mirror capacitance 4 , self-turn-on tolerance improves by 14 times compared with competitor's products. Thus, fast switching operation can be realized and helps reduce switching loss. Reduced switching-power loss enables the downsizing and simplification of cooling systems as well as the downsizing of peripheral components, such as reactor by driving the power semiconductor with a higher carrier frequency 5 , thereby helping to reduce the cost and size of overall power-supply systems.
