Wolfspeed, A Cree Company will showcase its latest SiC power devices at PCIM 2016 in Nuremberg, Germany from May 10 to 12. As Europe's leading conference for power electronics technology and applications in intelligent motion, renewable energy, and energy management, PCIM 2016 features a comprehensive technical program in addition to the exhibition.

Participating with its distribution partner MeV (Hall 9, Stand 242), Wolfspeed will demonstrate the newest product innovations in SiC power technology. One of the products on display will be a next-generation, high performance 62mm half-bridge all-SiC power module and gate driver combination with three-phase evaluation kit. Another is the SpeedFit™ tool, Wolfspeed’s new complimentary online simulation tool that allows power electronics design engineers to model, simulate, and evaluate the performance of SiC-based power circuits.

In addition, Wolfspeed will highlight two examples of the smaller, cooler, and more efficient 20kW dc-dc converters made possible through the design, circuit and performance improvements, and overall system savings of SiC power devices and modules, and will showcase the continued expansion of their industry-first 900V SiC MOSFET platform.

“We’re looking forward to engaging our customers at PCIM 2016 with our next-generation of SiC devices and modules,” said Guy Moxey, Wolfspeed’s senior director of power products. “As the wide bandgap power semiconductor market continues to expand, we’re going to be launching more devices that are designed and developed specifically to optimize SiC’s inherent performance advantages.”

Conference presentations will include: On Tuesday, May 10, at 11:00am, Wolfspeed Business Development and Program Manager, Jeffrey Casady, will present a paper entitled “Ultra-low (1.25µΩ On-Resistance 900V SiC 62mm Half-Bridge Power Modules Using New 10mΩ SiC MOSFETs” in the Brüssel Room.

On Wednesday, May 11, at 10:00am, Wolfspeed Director of Business Development, Dr. Ty McNutt, will take part in a Power Electronics Market Briefing hosted by Yolé Développement in the Industry Forum Area (Hall 6 – 248).

Also on Wednesday, May 11, at noon, Wolfspeed CTO, Dr. John Palmour, will present “SiC Volume, Production & Cost” as part of the Bodo’s Power System Forum in the Industry Forum Area (Hall 6 – 248).

On Wednesday, May 11, at 3:30pm, Wolfspeed Technical Marketing Manager, Dr. Marcelo Schupbach, will present “A Digital Predictive Constant Frequency Controller For High Frequency 3-Phase Silicon Carbide PFC Rectifier” at the Foyer Entrance NCC Mitte.

On Thursday, May 12, at 10:00am, Wolfspeed Product Marketing Engineer, Edgar Ayerbe, will present “Wolfspeed 900V MOSFETs for Fast Battery Charger Applications” as part of the PCIM Vendor Sessions (Hall 7 – 260).
