Icone CREE 1200V SiC Module flyerIn 3 years, the performance/cost ratio of SiC MOSFET has been multiplied by 3.

The CAS120M12BM2 from CREE Semiconductor is a power module of 2 transistors with a breakdown voltage of 1200V for a current of 138A (90°C), an ultra low on-resistance (13mΩ), a fast switching speed and a fast reverse recovery.

The CAS120M12BM2 integrates 12 2nd generation high-voltage SiC (Silicon Carbide) power MOSFET dies with a current of 23A (90°C) for 10 sq mm, and 24x Z-Rec diode of 4.8 sq mm are integrated in the power module. The Z-Rec diode is a mix between a Schottky and junction barrier diode.

The second generation MOSFET has a new gate design, a more sophisticated ohmic contact and a thinner substrate. The comparison between the 2 generations is developed in the report.

System Plus Consulting is publishing a reverse costing report on this module. Based on a complete teardown analysis, the report provides an estimation of the production cost of the CAS120M12BM2 package, SiC MOSFET Transistor and Schottky Barrier Diode.

Across the Enterprise, from marketing to purchasing and R&D, product manufacturing cost is a major factor which has to be measured and then optimized. Since 1993, System Plus Consulting’s mission has been to develop and sell the right tools and services to meet these costing requirements.

System Plus Consulting utilizes an engineering approach to cost. Cost models and technology expertise are combined to provide customers with an accurate and objective estimation of manufacturing costs and selling prices.

Headquartered in Nantes, France, System Plus Consulting is specialized in technology and cost analysis of electronic components and systems. During our 20 years in business, we have built and refined detailed cost models as the primary tools for hundreds of analyses. The highly qualified System Plus cost engineers combine broad and deep skills in semiconductor and electronics technologies with years of experience in cost modeling.

We offer:
− Custom reverse costing analyses: technology analysis followed by cost evaluation
− Standard reverse costing reports: regular publications on innovative products (available from our catalogue)
− Costing tools: software tools combining models and data to perform cost analysis

System Plus Consulting analyzes any type of electronic devices and systems, with a special focus on semiconductor technologies. Major fields of technology and cost expertise are:
− Integrated Circuits
− Power Devices and Modules
− MEMS & Sensors
− Photonics: LED, Image Sensors
− Packaging including wafer level
− Electronic Boards and Systems

Our analyses are used by Purchasing Departments to measure their suppliers’ cost structure, R&D Departments to confirm technological choices depending on their impact on costs, and Benchmarking/Marketing Departments to monitor the products on the market.

System Plus Consulting is committed to provide a high level of service:
− Delivery of reports and custom analyses with a minimum lead time.
− Results presentation and online Q&A sessions when support is needed.
− Open methodology and full confidentiality in order to maintain a trustful collaboration.

Since 2008, our partnership with YOLE Développement has allowed us to stay at the forefront of technologies and has added a market view to our reports.
