This article reports the results obtained from an electrical characterization under high temperatures (25°C and 100°C), where forward voltage and reserve current were monitored for a set of 130 devices. The optimization process for these devices reflects an excellent behavior in on mode and a right compromise in a reverse way for the chosen application.
The importance of SiC devices in the power electronics field and how this can be particularly useful in space applications. Also, we set the foundations for a SiC diode that complies with the optimized performances needed for the rectifier module in the next generation of EPCs for TWTAs.
The inductor released today is optimized for energy storage in DC/DC converters up to 2 MHz and high current filtering applications up to the SRF of the inductor. Applications for the device include notebooks, desktops, and servers; low profile, high current power supplies; POL converters; battery-powered devices; and distributed power systems and FPGAs.
The study will be focused on the development of high voltage SiC Schottky diode in a package suitable for space application with the primary goal to characterize the performances of the devices in terms of switching capability, reliability of the technology, and preliminary characterization of static and dynamic parameters as a function of temperatures as well as to characterize the thermal impedance and resistance of the proposed package solution.
The thermomechanical analysis (TMA) of plastic encapsulated microelectronic and COTS parts is a fundamental technique to avoid (during the design and fabrication stage) and foresee anomalies related to the deformation of packages with temperature. Thus, this is a very effective tool to disclose and screen out possible reliability concerns related to the thermo-mechanical integrity and stability of the devices.
This inductor series is manufactured with a metal alloy powder core featuring low DC resistance, high heating/saturation current, low buzz noise, excellent temperature stability, and shielded construction for low magnetic field radiation.
