Richardson RFPD Announces Availability of 200kW, 250kW and 300kW Inverter Reference Designs from Wolfspeed
Richardson RFPD announces the in-stock availability and full design support capabilities for three inverter reference designs from Wolfspeed, a Cree Company.
May 26, 2020 – Geneva, Ill.: Richardson RFPD, Inc., an Arrow Electronics company, announced today the in-stock availability and full design support capabilities for three inverter reference designs from Wolfspeed, a Cree Company.
The 200 kW CRD200DA12E-XM3, 250 kW CRD250DA12E-XM3 and 300 kW CRD300DA12EXM3 three-phase inverters enable more than twice the power density of comparable silicon-based designs, with greater than 98% efficiency. Switching frequency is set by the user, up to 80 kHz. The CRD200DA12E-XM3, CRD250DA12E-XM3 and CRD300DA12E-XM3 use the CAB400M12XM3, CAB425M12XM3 and CAB450M12XM3 modules, respectively, as well as the CGD12HBXMP gate driver.
These reference designs demonstrate the best-in-class system-level power density and efficiency obtained by using Wolfspeed’s new XM3 power module platform. The XM3 power module platform is optimized for SiC MOSFETs in a high-density, low-inductance footprint, which reduces system-level losses and simplifies the overall system design.
Applications include high-power density new product development, high-frequency converters, vehicle traction inverters, active front ends, uninterruptible power supplies, industrial motor drives, energy storage, grid-tied distributed generation (solar and wind), and smart-grid and flexible AC transmission systems.

The devices are also available by calling 1-800-737-6937 (within North America); or find a local sales engineer (worldwide) at Local Sales Support.
