The LEAP Awards celebrate the most innovative and forward-thinking products serving the design engineering space. Onsemi won in the power electronics category, which covers power supplies, transistors, and any other power electronic circuits, components, or assemblies used in power electronics, including battery and battery management.
The company’s latest generation of EliteSiC silicon-carbide (SiC) M3S devices earned onsemi first place. They enable power electronics designers to achieve best-in-class efficiency and lower system cost.
According to the LEAP Awards’ judges, these devices are timely new products “that fill an emerging and current need with smart improvements in operation from less energy required for gate switching to lowered cooling requirements, which is often at odds with high-powered switching applications.”
The latest onsemi portfolio includes EliteSiC MOSFETs and modules that facilitate higher switching speeds, specifically supporting the growing number of 800 V electric vehicle (EV) on-board charger (OBC), and energy infrastructure applications, such as EV charging, solar, and energy storage systems.
The automotive-qualified 1200-V EliteSiC MOSFETs are specifically tailored for high-power OBCs up to 22 kW and high voltage to low voltage DC-DC converters. M3S technology has been developed specifically for high-speed switching applications and has the best-in-class figure of merits for switching losses.
“Onsemi’s latest generation of automotive and industrial EliteSiC M3S products will allow designers to reduce their application footprint and system cooling requirements,” said Asif Jakwani, senior VP and GM manager of the Advanced Power Division, with onsemi. “This helps designers to develop high power converters with higher levels of efficiency and increased power densities.”
