SiC Schottky Bare Die

About SiC Schottkys

Historically, Schottky diodes constructed using silicon have been limited in their maximum breakdown voltage. Increasing breakdown voltage >200V results in significantly higher on-resistance and leakage current which are the key performance parameters of any diode. However, benefits of Schottky construction are its switching speed and lack of any recovery time compared with other rectifiers in the diode family. This makes silicon Schottkys very successful in mainstream low voltage power electronics. For higher voltages in the power discrete market, typically P-N junction rectifiers are used. Although, P-N junction rectifiers may have voltages up to 1700V, they are slower and exhibit more switching losses than a theoretical Schottky would achieve were it capable of handling the equivalent voltage.

Today, SiC with its significantly higher breakdown voltage capability, combined with the Schottky construction, provides all the performance benefits of Schottky switching without the ramp of on-resistances and leakage current observed with silicon. SiC is also exceptionally rugged and SiC Schottky diodes show very little variance in performance as temperature increases. As a result, better power densities and higher switching efficiencies can be achieved. Also, there is a reduction in size and number of peripheral passive components needed in Schottky diodes compared with silicon diodes.

Benefits of SiC Schottky Die

  • Higher switching frequencies - no reverse recovery charge accumulates during the diode's normal conduction period (No trr)
  • No reverse recovery charge = less heat and low switching losses
  • No safety margins necessary for startup and cycle drop out operations
  • Cool operation during transient thermal load steps
  • Improved light load efficiency by significantly reduced device capacitances
  • Break down voltages >1700V


  • Solar Power
  • Traction controls
  • On board power generation and control
  • High speed motor drives
  • Machine tools
  • Robotics and HF supplies
