Outstanding thermal performance
Nürnberg, 10 May 2016
Beside a standard silicone based and a silicon free thermal grease, a phase change material and the new high performance thermal paste with an improved thermal performance are now available. SEMIKRON formulated a clear strategy that phase change materials will be applied on modules with baseplate only and thermal greases on modules without a baseplate. The new high performance thermal paste is the SEMIKRON solution to boost the performance for modules without baseplate. A reduction of the thermal resistance by up to 50% is possible which goes along with a module output power increase by up to 25% or a lifetime enhancement by several decades. The new high performance paste will be available for all baseplate-less power modules.
