Key Feature 1 : Dramatically lower switching loss

Switching Waveforms (600V10A)

Ultra-short reverse recovery time (impossible to achieve with silicon) enables high-speed switching. This minimizes the reverse recovery charge (Qrr), reducing switching loss significantly, contributing to end-product miniaturization.

trr Temperature Characteristrics

In addition, SiC devices maintain a constant trr regardless of temperature, unlike conventional silicon fast recovery diodes where the trr increases with temperature.
This enables high-temperature driving without increasing switching loss.


ROHM continues to improve its device processes and implement low VF in line with generational changes.

Key Feature 2 : Stable temperature characteristics

SBD: Forward Characterisrics

SiC diodes exhibit stabler temperature characteristics (i.e. forward voltage) compared with silicon-based devices, simplifying parallel connection(s) and preventing thermal runaway - unlike Si FRDs.

Key Feature 3 : A vertically integrated production system ensures high quality and stable supply

A 'Quality First' objective allows ROHM to establish a vertically integrated manufacturing system for SiC production. In addition to acquiring SiCrystal, a German wafer fabrication company in 2009, the ROHM Group continues to implement activities to improve quality throughout the entire manufacturing process, from wafers to packages. World-class manufacturing technologies and stable production capacity provide increased cost competitiveness and ensures a stable, long-term supply of new products.
