Rohm announced the availability of AC/DC converter ICs with a built-in 1700V SiC MOSFET, the BM2SCQ12xT-LBZ series.
This series is optimized for industrial applications including street lamps, commercial AC systems, and general-purpose AC servos and inverters used in high power equipment.
This series enables breakthrough energy savings and facilitates efficient AC/DC converter design by resolving many of the issues encountered by designers using discrete solutions. 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 (from 12pcs plus heat sink to a single IC).
It also aids to minimizing both the component failure risk and the amount of resources required to develop systems using SiC MOSFETs. In addition, this product enables the improvement of power efficiency by 5% (and decreasing power loss by 28%).
These features translate to dramatic reduction in size, improved reliability, and superior power savings in industrial applications.
