Wolfspeed XM3 Module Platform

Wolfspeed XM3 Module Platform

Wolfspeed’s XM3 power module maximizes the benefits of Silicon Carbide, while keeping the module and system design robust, simple and cost effective.

With half the weight and volume of a standard 62 mm module, the XM3 power module maximizes power density while minimizing loop inductance and enabling simpler power bussing. The optimized package enables 175°C continuous junction operation, with a high reliability silicon nitride (Si3N4) power substrate to ensure mechanical robustness under extreme conditions. The XM3 is a perfect fit for demanding automotive applications such as traction and motor drives, EV fast chargers, power supplies, and industrial automation and testing equipment.
