Alter Technology laboratories have been working with Silicon Carbide (SiC) technology in the last two decades to demonstrate its usability and benefits in Space.
One of the critical points in space, is the extreme temperatures. To avoid these conditions, Alter Technology and CNM (Spain National Centre of Microelectronics) have developed SiC Schottky diodes with hermetic metallic packages that offer, high junction temperatures up to 330 degrees Celsius, and protons and gamma radiation tolerance. Therefore, these components are a perfect solution for high-frequency or hard switching power space applications. Also, they have been used successfully in ESA projects.
Here below, you can read and download the full datasheet of one of our components. This component also has been included in the ESCC 5106/022 specification, and listed in the EPPL (European Preferred Part List).
