Enhancing efficiency of electric vehicles

Onsemi has released its latest generation 1200V EliteSiC silicon carbide M3S devices, designed to help power electronics designers achieve best-in-class efficiency and lower system cost. The portfolio includes EliteSiC MOSFETs and modules that facilitate higher switching speeds to support the growing number of 800V electric vehicle on-board charger and energy infrastructure applications, such as EV charging, solar and energy storage systems.

The portfolio includes new EliteSiC M3S devices in half-bridge power integrated modules in a standard F2 package. Targeting industrial applications, the modules suit DC-AC, AC-DC and DC-DC high power conversion stages.

Onsemi’s senior vice president and general manager of the Advanced Power Division, Asif Jakwani, said: “Onsemi’s latest generation of automotive and industrial EliteSiC M3S products will allow designers to reduce their application footprint and system cooling requirements. This helps designers to develop high power converters with higher levels of efficiency and increased power densities.”
