Cree Inc. announces Z-Rec 1700-V Junction Barrier Schottky (JBS) diode products. Leveraging silicon carbide’s unique advantages over silicon to virtually eliminate diode switching losses, these diodes are targeted at high-voltage power-conversion applications in motor drive, wind energy, and traction systems.
Initial products in the 1700-V series include 10-A and 25-A JBS diodes in die form, ready for integration into 1700-V power modules ranging from 50 to 600 A. The new 1700-V JBS series can increase the efficiency, reliability, and longevity of power systems while also reducing overall system size, weight, and cost.
