SiC Junction Transistors

SJT GeneSiC Junction TransistorGeneSiC is offering and continuously improving a new innovative power device, the Silicon Carbide Junction Transistor (SJT). SJTs are “Super-High” current gain SiC BJTs being developed by GeneSiC in 1200 V – 10 kV ratings. The SJTs are gate-oxide free, normally-off, quasi-majority carrier devices with a square reverse biased safe operation area (RBSOA) and a slightly positive temperature co-efficient of on-resistance. The SJT is a current controlled device require a small gate current that can be driven by commercial, commonly available gate drivers. Incorporating high voltage, high frequency and high-temperature capable SiC SJTs will increase conversion efficiency and reduce the size/weight/volume of power electronics.

  • Normally-OFF
  • Compatible with standard MOSFET/IGBT Drivers
  • Compatible with anti-parallel diode connection
  • Low Gate Capacitance
  • Best in class temperature independent switching and blocking performance
  • Positive coefficient for easy paralleling
  • Low gate charge
  • Lowest switching losses for power switches AND low EMI
  • Highest On-Current SiC Switch

Gate Driver Boards compatible with these SJT devices:

Gate Driver boards are offered which enable efficient switching of SJT devices. These boards are designed to offer the low Eon/Eoff, and low continuous driver losses. GeneSiC strives to make all components/Board Layouts/Gerber files freely available/downloadable, so that end-users can incorporate these gate drivers into their main boards or get the boards fabricated themselves. There might be better/cheaper boards realized by customers.
