Maximise your power


Thanks to its easy assembly concept, MiniSKiiP knows no bounds when it comes to new applications and markets. The MiniSKiiP Dual Split MLI offers the most powerful baseplate-less string inverter design available and is ready for 1500V DC bus voltage… read more

Full SiC Performance in Power Modules


Discrete devices such as the TO-247 are fine as a first step towards integrating silicon carbide into various applications, but for more powerful and sophisticated designs, the integration capabilities of power modules make them the first choice. read more

IGBT switching with cable load


Datasheet switching losses of IGBTs and their freewheeling diodes are determined in a double pulse test with a purely inductive load. This closely resembles the application conditions in most cases and is therefore also set out in the applicable… read more

Module solutions for 1500V solar inverters


By increasing the maximum DC Voltage of a solar inverter from 1000V to 1500V PV power plants become more cost effective. However, this voltage jump requires careful consideration when selecting power modules and converter topologies. read more
