Cree Inc. debuts the Z-Rec 1700V junction barrier Schottky (JBS) diode products that can increase the efficiency, reliability and longevity of power systems while also reducing the overall system size, weight and cost. The 1700V junction barrier Schottky (JBS) diode products targeted at high-voltage power-conversion applications in motor-drive, wind-energy and traction systems.

Leveraging silicon carbide's unique advantages over silicon to virtually eliminate diode switching losses , the Initial products in the series include 10A and 25A JBS diodes in die form, ready for integration into 1700V power modules ranging from 50A to 600A.

"The 1700-V diodes extend our leadership in energy-efficient power systems for data centre and solar power markets to new markets such as wind-energy, train, tram and electric vehicle power converters," said Cengiz Balkas, Cree, VP and general manager, power and RF. "Cree has the diodes of choice when high-efficiency power systems are a must. The advantages of silicon carbide are clear, and for high-voltage, high-frequency systems, you can't afford not to use SiC."
