IGBT modules in 62 mm package enable higher power density

March 13, 2017 // By Graham Prophet
Infineon is expanding its offering of 62 mm IGBT modules with a larger chip area and an adapted DCB substrate in the eastablished 62 mm package. Typical applications for modules with 1200V blocking voltage are drives, solar inverters and uninterruptible power supply (UPS) as well as medium voltage drives for modules with 1700V blocking voltage.

With a blocking voltage of 1200V, the 62 mm module reaches a maximum current rating of 600A. At 1700V blocking voltage, the maximum current rating is 500A. The package is equipped with a base plate conforming to the industrial standard. It can be integrated into existing designs delivering, for example, 20% more output power when applied for drives. The portfolio uses the IGBT4 – a proven technology that offers high robustness and reliability.

 

Two versions of the new power modules are also available in the “common emitter” configuration, with which a 3-level topology (NPC2) can be set up. This allows an efficient use in solar and UPS applications where the demand for power is high. Modules are available with pre-applied thermal interface material (TIM). Infineon also offers thyristor / diode modules for the input rectifier in 34 mm and 50 mm packages featuring solder bonding technology.
