GeneSiC Semiconductors has introduced the industry-leading 1200V 3rd generation G3R SiC MOSFETs in the optimized low-inductance discrete packages (SMD and through-hole). The new MOSFETs deliver industry-leading performance, robustness, and quality to harness a greater level of efficiency and system reliability in automotive and industrial applications.


Optimized for power system designs requiring elevated efficiency levels and ultra-fast switching speeds, the new device delivers the industry’s lowest on-state resistance with a low gate charge. The new MOSFETs feature the softest temperature dependence of on-state resistance to offer very low conduction losses at all temperatures. GeneSiC’s 1200V SiC MOSFET discrete are 100 % avalanche (UIL) tested during production.


GeneSiC’s MOSFETs feature benchmark low reverse recovery charge (QRR) at all temperatures; 30% better than any similarly rated competitor device. The G3R SiC MOSFETs are designed to be driven at +15V/-5V gate drive; they can drive faster and more efficiently with their low device capacitances. The new SiC MOSFETs are suitable for various applications such as electric vehicle – power train and charging, solar inverter and energy storage, industrial motor drive, Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), Switched Mode Power Supply (SMPS), bi-directional DC-DC converters, smart grid and HVDC, induction heating and welding, pulsed power application.
