Compact power inverter for hybrids, EVs

  • 30-Nov-2011 08:10 EST


Delphi Automotive offers a high-performance power inverter that is up to 30% smaller than available production systems, claims the company. Designed for use with electric motors in hybrid and electric vehicles, the inverter uses patented power silicon packaging to reduce cost, size, and weight while increasing overall reliability and extending product lifespan. The power inverter’s packaging eliminates wire bonds, enables higher current and power density, and when combined with double-side cooling, reduces the power semiconductor area. By providing heat exchanger, interface, component, and operating parameter (such as voltage and current) options, the power inverter can be customized to meet specific customer requirements.
