Research and Development

Teledyne Scientific Company develops advanced power semiconductor switches and modules using wide band-gap Silicon Carbide (SiC). SiC offers a variety of system advantages over conventional switches and modules.

  • Gains in power efficiency
  • Reductions in size and weight, reduction in converter size and weight (33%-60%)
  • High-switching speed
  • Low conduction and low switching losses
  • High temperature operating capabilities
Teledyne Scientific Company demonstrated the world’s first SiC-based motor drive with an efficiency of 99.4% and SiC-based HV DC-DC converter with a switching frequency of 1MHz. For high-power communications, we have demonstrated 50W SiC MESFET PA modules with excellent linearity and low return-to-loss.
