At the exhibition, Richardson RFPD will feature component sourcing and design support for your high power applications including discrete devices and modules from industry-leading manufacturers Microsemi, Wolfspeed, Maxwell, Power Integrations, Vincotech, Cornell Dubilier and Astrodyne.

Stop by the Richardson RFPD booth and enter our drawing to win Wolfspeed's new 900V SiC evaluation kit. It is a pre-assembled PCB assembly in a half-bridge configuration featuring two C3M0120090J SiC MOSFETs from Wolfspeed in a surface mount 7L-D2PAK package. The board allows easy evaluation of the MOSFET switching waveforms, gate drive circuit performance and protection implementation on a PCB. It is an example on optimal layout, short circuit protection and thermal cooling for an isolated heat sink when using any 1200V or 900V Wolfspeed 7L-D2PAK SiC MOSFET. Use it as an evaluation tool or as a means to quickly prototype a SiC power converter.
