Wolfspeed to Demo SiC Products at APEC 2016

Wolfspeed, a Cree Company, will be showcasing its industry-leading solutions at this year's Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC 2016). The annual conference, which will take place March 20-24 in Long Beach, Calif., is globally recognized as the leading North American technical gathering dedicated to the applied power electronics industry. In addition to their exhibition, Wolfspeed engineers will be presenting new research and leading application panels as part of the conference program.

Exhibiting in booth #1633, Wolfspeed will demonstrate an evaluation board that enables power electronics design engineers to quickly implement the company's breakthrough 900V SiC MOSFETs and an evaluation unit utilizing high-performance SiC power modules for three-phase inverter applications.

"We're excited to offer the industry's first 900V SiC MOSFET portfolio, especially our exclusive SiC-optimized surface-mount packaged devices," said Guy Moxey, Wolfspeed's senior director of power products. "Our latest evaluation board allows design engineers to quickly and easily evaluate the quality and performance of these MOSFETs for themselves."

Wolfspeed will showcase its portfolio of leading-edge 900V SiC MOSFETs in the surface mount 7L-D2PAK package, and demonstrate a pre-assembled PCB evaluation board that allows design engineers to evaluate SiC MOSFET switching waveforms, gate driver performance, and circuit protection features to quickly prototype a SiC power converter.
