SiC MOSFET enables miniaturisation in pulse generators

SiC MOSFET enables miniaturisation in pulse generators
 Fukushima SiC Applied Engineering has selected ROHM’s SCT2080KE SiC MOSFET for use in its SiC-Pulser series of high voltage pulse generators. Pulse generators are used in a variety of applications, including high voltage accelerators, plasma generators and laser processing machines. Conventional systems utilise silicon devices or vacuum tubes as switching elements. However, this often entails a large number of system components which results in enormous construction and installation costs.
