Toshiba’s TW070J120B 1200V SiC MOSFET features low ON-resistance, low input capacitance and low total gate charge enabling it to achieve high switching speeds and reduced power consumption. It’s target application is 400V AC input AC-DC converter for industrial equipment and bidirectional DC-DC converters (such as those of photovoltaic modules and UPS).
The TW070J120B has reduced the turn-off switching loss by about 80% and the switching time (fall time) by about 70% compared with the 1200V silicon insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) GT40QR21.
Furthermore, the new product also features low ON-voltage characteristics for a current lower than 20A.
Incorporating a SiC Schottky barrier diode (SBD) with low forward voltage reduces power loss. A high gate threshold voltage (4.2 to 5.8V) is useful to avoid unintended turn on or off situations.
