A New Approach to Circuit Breaker Design Using Silicon Carbide Switches - Nov 21
Mechanical circuit breakers can be low cost with minimal losses, but they operate slowly and wear out. Solid state versions overcome the problems and are becoming increasing viable as replacements at...

600V intelligent IGBT power modules are rugged for motor drive applications

The intelligent power modules are compact and are designed with AlphaIGBT technology. They also integrate high functional gate driver ICs, and high-density package technology for applications such as refrigerators, washing machines, and fan motors.

In addition to patent-pending package technology, the modules are claimed to have an industry-leading IGBT technology with fast turn-off and low VCE(SAT) that reduces the power losses incurred during conduction and switching. Multi-function gate driver ICs feature a wide-input voltage interface, over-current protection, and over-temperature protection and monitoring.

IPM-driven inverters are used in home appliances and three-phase-motor-drive applications due to global energy saving regulations. The company says that this series of modules meet these requirements while combining higher efficiency, high ruggedness and better EMI performance.

The modules are UL-recognised (UL1557-E345245).
