Cree SiC MOSFETs Revolutionize HEV/EV Power Converters

Cree, Inc. announced that Shinry Technologies, a premier high-tech enterprise focused on energy efficient applications in transportation and lighting, employed Cree’s 1200V C2M family of SiC MOSFETs in its new, high-efficiency, hybrid electric and electric vehicle (HEV/EV) power converters to achieve industry-leading 96 percent efficiency.  According to Shinry Technologies, Cree’s C2M SiC MOSFETS also enabled a 25 percent reduction in product size and reduced peak power losses by over 60 percent compared to the traditional silicon versions.

Based in Shenzhen, China, Shinry Technologies Co., Ltd. specializes in creating HEV/EV DC-DC converter, on-board charger and rapid charger solutions for a market that demands high reliability, efficiency and compact size.  By implementing Cree’s advanced second-generation SiC MOSFETs in its latest 3-10 kW DC-DC converters designed for use in electric busses, Shinry achieved considerable efficiency improvement and significant size and weight reduction.  

Packaged SiC MOSFETs from Cree are available from DigiKey, Farnell/Newark, Richardson and Mouser, and die are available from SemiDice.  For more information, please visit or contact a local Cree sales person or distributor.
