Anticipating the Future for 20 Years
20 years ago the MiniSKiiP was born. A unique design that set a new standard in the power electronics world: solder-free PCB assembly using spring contacts for minimum assembly times, easy PCB design and excellent connection reliability, resulting in an immediate system cost benefit.
20 Years of Innovation
With more than 35 million modules in the field, MiniSKiiP has innovated the world of power electronics. It is the first module available with pre-applied Thermal Interface Material, one of the first industrial standard modules to feature Silicon Carbide and it uniquely covers a power range from 1 to 90kW as a full motor drives solution.
Today, we are still innovating the future. MiniSKiiP boosts reliability and power density utilizing the SEMIKRON technology portfolio and is gaining ground on new markets such as medium-voltage inverters.
MiniSKiiP – 20 years and still innovative.
An important benefit of MiniSKiiP modules is the outstandingly easy assembly and service-friendly spring-contacts for the load and gate terminals. Compared to conventional soldered modules, where expensive soldering equipment and time-consuming solder processes are required, no special tools are needed for MiniSKiiP assembly. The printed circuit board (PCB), the power module and the heat sink are all assembled in one mounting step using a one or two screw connection.
With more than two decades of experience and more than 35 million modules in the field, this module platform has proven successful in all standard applications like standard drives, stand-alone drives, servo drives, system drives, solar inverters, UPS systems and welding machines.
