AC/DC Converters Integrate 1.7 kV SiC MOSFET

Deemed an industry first, ROHM’s BM2SCQ12xT-LBZ series ac/dc converter ICs integrate a 1.7 kV SiC MOSFET and is optimized for industrial applications including street lamps, commercial AC systems, and general-purpose AC servos and inverters. Incorporating a SiC MOSFET and control circuitry optimized for auxiliary power supplies for industrial equipment in a single package significantly reduces the number of parts required when compared to the conventional designs. It also aids to minimizing both the component failure risk and the amount of resources required to develop systems using SiC MOSFETs. In addition, the components enable the improvement of power efficiency by 5% and decreases power loss by 28%.

The BM2SCQ12xT-LBZ series ac/dc converter ICs are available now. For more details and spec, datasheets are available on the company’s website.
