Delta Elektronika uses Cree SiC FETs in Next-Gen High-Efficiency Power Supplies
Cree, Inc.â€™s newly expanded portfolio of 1200 V SiC MOSFETs are being incorporated into the latest advanced power supplies from Delta Elektronika BV. Delta Elektronika demonstrated a 21 percent decrease in overall power supply losses and a reduction in component count by up to 45 percent when compared to power supply products using traditional silicon technology.
â€œWe are delighted to use Creeâ€™s new SiC transistor in our product series, as it improves both the efficiency and power density of our products,â€ said Job Koopmann, director of Delta Elektronika BV. â€œThe switching behavior is outstanding and controlling the MOSFET is simple and straightforward. This device is helping us to continue developing more reliable products, which our customers expect from us.â€
Since 1959, Netherlands-based Delta Elektronika BV has been a leader in producing highly reliable, high-quality power supplies for a range of industrial applications, such as specialized equipment used in factories, automation and industrial power conversion. Its power supplies typically provide high efficiency with low noise levels and are well known for their long operating lifespan. By implementing Creeâ€™s advanced second-generation SiC MOSFETs in its latest power supply series, Delta Elektronika BV is leading the industry in the deployment and delivery of highly reliable advanced technology.
â€œWe are pleased to have Delta Elektronika BV as one of the volume adopters of our newest generation of SiC MOSFETs,â€ said Cengiz Balkas, general manager, Cree Power and RF. â€œDelta Elektronika BV has a half-century legacy of producing some of the most reliable, efficient and compact power supplies on the market. The industrial power supply market, which values efficiency, reliability and power density, is a key market for SiC MOSFET technology. Our new second-generation SiC MOSFET portfolio, which now includes a 160 m-Ohm MOSFET for the 5-10 kW market, is receiving strong market pull.â€
