Cree SiC MOSFETs to be incorporated into advanced power suppliers from Delta Elektronika

Cree, Inc. announces that its 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.

Since 1959, Netherlands-based Delta Elektronika BV has produced 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.

“We are pleased to have Delta Elektronika BV as one of the volume adopters of our newest generation of SiC MOSFETs,” said Cengiz Balkas, general manager, Cree Power and RF. “Delta 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.”

Introduced in March 2013, Cree’s second-generation SiC MOSFETs have been well received throughout the power industry and are experiencing an increasing rate of adoption in several key applications, including a design-in at a major manufacturer’s next-generation, highly efficient PV inverters. With SiC, power supply manufacturers are able to reduce their component count to help improve reliability while maintaining or improving the power supply’s efficiency. Improving power density can also lead to reductions in the size, weight, volume and in some cases, even the cost of power supplies. SiC has been demonstrated to achieve more than twice the power density than typical silicon technology in standard power supply designs.
