Product Brief Features 650V SiC thinQ!™ Generation 5 diodes Your way is our way: improve efficiency and solution costs ThinQ!™ Generation 5 represents Infineon’s leading edge technology for SiC Schottky Barrier diodes. The Infineon proprietary diffusion soldering process, already introduced with G3, is now combined with a new, more compact design and thin wafer technology. The result is a new family of products showing improved efficiency over all load conditions, coming from both the improved thermal characteristics and a lower figure of merit (Qc x Vf). The new thinQ!™ Generation 5 has been designed to complement our 650V CoolMOS™ families: this ensures meeting the most stringent application requirements in this voltage range. Vbr at 650V Improved Figure of Merit (Qc x Vf) No reverse recovery charge Soft switching reverse recovery waveform Temperature independent switching behavior High operating temperature (Tj max 175°C) Improved surge capability Pb-free lead plating 10 years manufacturing of SiC diodes Benefits Higher safety margin against Overvoltage; best match with CoolMOS™ 650V products Improved efficiency over all load conditions Increased efficiency compared to Silicon Diode alternatives Reduced EMI compared to snappier Silicon diode reverse recovery waveform Highly stable switching performance Reduced cooling requirements Reduced risks of thermal runaway RoHS compliant High quality know-how and capacity in SiC diode manufacture 98.5 Eﬃciency [%] a) 98.0 Generation 5 Generation 3 Generation 2 97.5 97.0 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% 90% 100% Output Power [% nominal] 0.15 b) Generation 5 Generation 3 Generation 2 Eﬃciency Diﬀerence [%] 0.10 Experimental results 0.05 Efficiency comparison among the three IFX generations of 8A SiC diodes a) Absolute values b) Referred to thinQ!™ Gen 5 0.00 - 0.05 (CCM PFC, High line, Pout max=1800 W, fSW=65 kHz, THS=60°C, MOSFET: IPW60R075CP) - 0.10 - 0.15 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% Output Power [% nominal] www.infineon.com/sic 80% 90% 100% Applications Telecom/Server SMPS Solar/UPS PC Silverbox LED/LCD TV Motor Drives HID lighting Product Brief 650V SiC thinQ!™ Generation 5 diodes Your way is our way: improve efficiency and solution costs 60 d=350µ[email protected]°C d=110µ[email protected]°C 50 40 IF [A/mm2] Infineon: leading technology An important achievement with Gen 5 is the industrial implementation of a thinning process which allows reducing the wafer thickness to almost 1/3 while maintaining the proven quality and yield levels. The thinning reduces the resistive contribution of the substrate (see picture on the right) and one of its most striking benefit is a consistent improvement of the surge current robustness, now at comparable level or even higher (for IF <10A) than for G2 in spite of a smaller chip size. In combination with our proprietary diffusion soldering, the reduced thickness further contributes to decrease the overall thermal resistance in the package.
