All American Semiconductor to distribute GeneSiC’s products

Electronic component distributor All American Semiconductor LLC of Tampa, FL, USA (which has branches across North America) has signed a distribution agreement with GeneSiC Semiconductor Inc of Dulles, VA, USA, which develops silicon carbide (SiC) and silicon-based devices for high-temperature, radiation and power grid applications.

Founded by Dr Ranbir Singh as president in 2004, GeneSiC’s SiC products feature a high operating temperature range, small heat-sink requirements and fast switching speeds. They are also inherently radiation resistant and offer higher voltage and current capability. The firm’s products — which include rectifiers, field-effect transistors (FETs), bipolar devices as well as particle and photonic detectors — are used in industries including aerospace, alternative energy, commercial, industrial and military. Applications include solar inverters, electric vehicles, wind power, medical power supplies, down-hole oil drilling and motor drives. Meanwhile, GeneSiC’s cost-effective silicon technology is available with quick lead times and offers what is claimed to be the industry's best forward voltage drop.

“We recognize GeneSiC as a leader in the field and are glad to begin distributing their silicon carbide products,” says All American's corporate product manager Cory Dana. “The company’s field application engineers have worldwide experience in taking an off-the-shelf product and designing it to meet client needs,” comments GeneSiC’s vice president Michael DiGangi about All American.
