This reference design demonstrates the application of Wolfspeed’s 650V C3M™ SiC MOSFETs to create a high power density electric vehicle (EV) on-board charger (OBC). This design leverages the high frequency switching capabilities of Wolfspeed 650V C3M™ SiC MOSFETs to create a smaller, lighter and cost effective system. This reference design is offered as a comprehensive design package which can be used as a starting point for new SiC designs.
The design accomplishes:
- Peak efficiencies of 96.5%
- Power densities of 53W/in^3 or 3KW/L
Speed the transition from silicon to Silicon Carbide with the industry’s most versatile modular Silicon Carbide evaluation platform providing a flexible set of building blocks for in-circuit evaluation of system performance.
