Tesla uses silicon carbide MOSFETs for the main inverter in the Model 3 (Photo: MotorTrend) Bosch will make the SiC chips at its existing plant in Reutlingen, near its Stuttgart headquarters the company''s executives said at an event to update on progress in building a new, 1 billion euro ($1.1 billion), chip fabriion plant in Dresden known as the ‘"fab."
Außerdem benötigen SiC-MOSFETs nur etwa 10 % der Drift-Dicke von Silizium-MOSFETs, um eine bestimmte Sperrspannung zu erreichen. Deshalb dominiert bei Silizium-MOSFETs der Driftwiderstand den R DS(on)-Wert, sobald die Sperrspannung mehrere 100 V übersteigt.Daher ist wegen des höheren Widerstands eine größere Die-Fläche erforderlich; nur dann lässt sich ein akzeptabler R DS(on)-Wert
