Infineon Power Modules Seek Industrial Chores

Targeting industrial and windmill applications, the PrimePACK family of IGBT power modules is available in 1.2 kV and 1.7 kV ratings and is said to be up to 45% lighter compared to other modules with the same power ratings. The modules are based on a unique packaging concept that relies on the company's IGBT4 chips. They employ a special layout of the IGBT chips inside the module that significantly improves heat distribution. The chips are closer to the baseplate’s screw-fastening points, resulting in a low thermal resistance between the baseplate and heatsink. A half-bridge configuration allows for scaling converter power by employing different module sizes or by connecting modules of a given type in parallel. Modules are available in two sizes: the 89 mm x 172 mm PrimePACK 2 and the 89 mm x 250 mm PrimePACK 3. INFINEON TECHNOLOGIES, Milpitas, CA. (866) 951-9519.
