SiC Schottky Barrier Diodes - Product Search Results | …
SiC Schottky Barrier Diodes The total capacitive charge (Qc) of Schottky barrier diodes (SBD) is small, reducing switching loss while enabling high-speed switching operation. In addition, unlike Si-based fast-recovery diodes where the trr (reverserecovery time) increases along with temperature, silicon carbide (SiC) devices maintain constant characteristics, resulting in better performance.

Power trends: Silicon carbide makes the drop
“What we make is not a traditional SiC MOSFET – we make a normally on SiC JFET and co-package with a custom low voltage silicon MOSFET in an always off device. The retained charge (Qrr) is about 3x lower than a silicon MOSFET and so has the gate drive – the downside is the added packaging complexity, but we can use an 8in mainstream silicon foundry for that.”
