Infineon Technologies AG has released the sixth and latest generation of its Silicon Carbide Schottky Diode. The first CoolSiC diodes (CoolSiC being Infineon Silicon Carbide product line name) was released in 2001. It was followed by 2nd generation in 2006, and so on until the 6th generation.
This CoolSiC G6 Diodes have a new layout, a new cell structure and a new metal contact design. Infineon does not provide more information about the design, apart this results in a claimed 17% lower figure of merit (Qc x Vf ).
They are available in 650V and from 4A to 20, in T0-220 real2pin packages.
