Intelligent power module

  • 17-Jan-2011 02:58 EST

Featuring a mass of 55 g (2 oz) and a volume of 49 cm³ (2.9 in³), Semikron’s MiniSKiiP intelligent power module (IPM) is lighter and more compact than any other 1200-V IPM, claims the company. With dimensions of 59 x 52 mm (2.3 x 2.0 in) and an overall height of 16 mm (0.6 in), the module is at least 50% smaller than conventional IPMs in this power range. According to the company, the design yields optimum switching properties with regard to electromagnetic interference. Developed for inverter applications of up to 15 kW, the technology allows for the development of compact inverters and reduced production costs. To achieve the high power density offered in the MiniSKiiP IPM, the power semiconductor chips and the DCB are thermally connected to the heat sink by way of a pressure contact system.
