SiC MOSFET Intelligent Power Module 1200V/340A, 3-Phase, Pin Fin Baseplate

CXT-PLA3SA12340A is a 3-phase 1200V/340A Silicon Carbide (SiC) MOSFET Intelligent Power Module integrating the power switches and a gate driver based on the CISSOID HADES2 chipset.
Cooled down through a lightweight AlSiC Pin Fin baseplate, this module addresses high power density converters offering a SiC power module designed for operation at high junction temperature up to 175°C. Compared to IGBT modules, this solution gives access to the full benefits of SiC technology to achieve high efficiency, high power density and high reliability thanks to low switching losses and high temperature operation.
The integration of the gate driver together with the power module gives direct access to a fully validated and optimized solution in terms of switching speed and losses, robustness against dI/dt and dV/dt and protection of the power stages (Desat, UVLO, AMC, SSD).
