Cree unveils new silicon carbide power module portfolio

1 min read

Cree is extending its power portfolio with the launch of its Wolfspeed WolfPACK power modules, extending its range of available solutions.

The Wolfspeed WolfPACK power modules have been developed to address a diverse range of industrial power markets, including electric vehicle fast charging, renewable energy and energy storage, and industrial power applications.

Using 1200V Wolfspeed MOSFET technology, these new modules deliver maximum efficiency in easy-to-use packages that allow designers to significantly increase efficiency and performance with smaller, more scalable power systems.

The use of silicon carbide-based power solutions enable faster, smaller, lighter and more powerful electrical systems for a wide range of industrial applications, when compared to silicon. These new modules maximize power density while simplifying designs in a standard form factor to significantly accelerate the production and rollout of next-generation technology for a wide range of rapidly growing industrial markets, including off-board charging and solar energy solutions.

According to Cree, the offering bridges the gap between single die discrete components and high-ampacity module solutions, giving design engineers a wider breadth of portfolio options for design requirements using Wolfspeed silicon carbide.

“The introduction of the Wolfspeed WolfPACK power modules extends our power portfolio to cover the broad spectrum of high voltage power applications, which will help an array of high-growth industries transform as the global transition from silicon to silicon carbide continues to accelerate,” said Jay Cameron, senior vice president and general manager, Wolfspeed Power. “Maximizing power density while minimising design complexity is essential for engineers working in the mid-power range, and the new modules simplify layouts to help accelerate production of EV fast charging and solar infrastructures.
