Powered by C2M MOSFET technology, the new module offers an industry low 2.1 mJ of total switching losses that is 14x lower than similarly rated IGBT4 modules. Positioned as a lower priced alternative to the existing high reliability CAS100H12AM1 module, the new CAS120M12BM2 module facilitates an easy design-in experience due to the well known, industry standard 62 mm package and the simple drive requirements of the C2M MOSFETs.

The new module represents a new price/performance paradigm for SiC technology, enabling simpler, lower cost systems with higher efficiency and reliability in applications such as induction heating, battery chargers, DC/DC converters, solar inverters, and line regenerative motor drives.

The CAS120M12BM2 module is stocked and available for immediate purchase at authorized Cree distributors such as Digi-Key, Mouser, and Richardson RFPD/Arrow RF & Power.
