The SEMITRANS 20 overcomes the limits of conventional module concepts and provides a new design approach for inverters used in applications such as traction, industrial drives and grid infrastructure. Optimised for the traction and medium-voltage market, the SEMITRANS 20 is designed as a half-bridge configuration featuring a built-in temperature sensor and opposite DC and AC power terminals. Compared to conventional modules, the stray inductance is as much as 75% lower, providing greater operational safety and facilitating paralleling.

The service life of the new SEMITRANS 20 traction module is up to 3 times longer than that of conventional traction modules. This is achieved through the use of state-of-the-art technologies such as sintered chips and AlCu Bond wires. The standardised package meets the increasing demands for lower costs, greater efficiency and durability for power electronics in industry, transportation and infrastructure.


SEMIKRON is one of the world's leading manufacturers of power modules and systems primarily in the medium output range (approx. 2kW up to 10MW). Our products are at the heart of modern energy efficient motor drives and industrial automation systems. Further application areas include power supplies, renewable energies (wind and solar power) and electric vehicles (private cars, vans, buses, lorries, forklift trucks, and more). SEMIKRON's innovative power electronic products enable our customers to develop smaller, more energy efficient power electronic systems. These systems in turn reduce the global energy demand.

SEMIKRON is a family owned business founded in 1951, headquartered in Nuremberg, Germany. Today the company has a staff of more than 3,200 people in 25 subsidiaries worldwide.
