Wolfspeed helps the power electronics industry rethink semiconductor performance standards with SiC devices, and is continuing that legacy of innovation with the new high-performance, low-cost XM3 power module platform targeting high-density system design. The XM3 platform carries high current, up to 500 A, in a small footprint (53 x 80 mm) with an offset terminal design for simple power bussing and tailored device configurations to meet diverse end-system requirements. Wolfspeed’s design team aims to share best-practice SiC design principles with the companion reference designs / evaluation tools, including: a gate driver, a laboratory dynamic characterization fixture, and a 300 kW inverter.
