Richardson RFPD has an extensive silicon carbide (SiC) offering, including the latest products and design resources focused exclusively on this emerging technology. Browse our selection of Schottky diodes, MOSFETs and IGBTs and educational material from industry leading manufacturers Wolfspeed, Microsemi, Vincotech and Powerex.

Silicon carbide offers significant advantages in high power, high voltage applications where power density, higher performance and reliability are of the utmost importance. Industrial applications like solar inverters, welding, plasma cutters, fast vehicle chargers and oil exploration are a few examples that benefit from the higher breakdown field strength and improved thermal conductivity that SiC offers over silicon material (Si).

Wolfspeed, Microsemi, Vincotech and Powerex are driving innovation in the development of SiC discrete devices and modules. Our global field engineers provide local support to a power conversion marketplace seeking the higher power densities, higher operating frequencies and higher efficiencies that SiC technology offers.
