Littelfuse is in the news again. The former protection system manufacturer is now more and more in the Power semiconductor manufacturing business. Last week it was about its acquisition of IXYS Corporation. Today, Littelfuse announced the release of their first Silicon Carbide based MOSFET.
This transistor is the first one born from the investments in Monolith Semiconductor (read here and here) that happened all along the last two years. This device is a 1200V and 25A MOSFET with an 80 mΩ On-Resistance. It’s beautifully named LSIC1MO120E0080 and will be available in TO-247-3L. Samples orders can already be placed at Littelfuse sales offices.
As for any other SiC MOSFET, it’s a major performance leap compared with Silicon, especially if it’s to be used for high frequency of switching applications.
