The CAB425M12XM3 is the newest addition to Wolfspeed’s XM3 power module platform, developed to maximize the benefits of SiC, while keeping the module and system design robust, simple and cost effective. With half the weight and volume of a standard 62 mm module, the XM3 power module maximizes power density while minimizing loop inductance and enabling simple power bussing. The XM3’s SiC-optimized packaging enables 175°C continuous junction operation, with a high-reliability silicon nitride (Si3N4) power substrate to ensure mechanical robustness under extreme conditions.
The CAB425M12XM3 targets applications with maximum current requirements at high switching frequencies, focused on power density, including vehicle fast chargers, uninterruptable power supplies, motor and traction drives, and smart-grid or grid-tied distributed generation.
Key features of the CAB425M12XM3 include:
Module size: 80 mm x 53 mm x 19 mm
Blocking voltage: 1200 V
Current rating: 425 A
Maximum junction temperature: 175 °C
An associated inverter reference design, the CRD250DA12E-XM3, is also available.
