GeneSIC GA08JT17-247 Super Junction Bipolar Silicon Carbide Transistor - Detailed Reverse Costing Analysis Report


Dublin, Oct. 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "GeneSIC GA08JT17-247 Super Junction Bipolar Silicon Carbide Transistor Reverse Costing Analysis" report to their offering.

The first 1700V super junction NPN Bipolar transistor from GeneSIC: Super-High current gain bipolar transistor compatible with standard MOSFET/IGBT Drivers

The Super Junction Transistors SiC are targeted for power switching applications and offer a better power efficiency. The first generation GeneSIC transistor has several new features. First, with a current density 4-5 times higher than a silicon transistor, this SIC transistor is a very interesting economical solution.

Second, the Ga08JT1700 is a super high current gain BJT, ß=40. A low gate current is necessary to drive it. This is why a standard
commercial IGBT/MOSFET driver can be used.

Third, the emitter and the collector regions are designed to reduce the minority carrier diffusion in order to obtain a high frequency.

Fourth, this transistor is designed for an operating temperature of 175°C maximum.
