SKYPER®12 – Drives up to 1700V and 400A

New solutions in drives focus on improving the power density and by that reducing size and cost. SKYPER12 is an IGBT driver core, smaller than a matchbox but with a 20A output stage. Thanks to a complete ground layer, adjustable input filter and optimised transformers with low coupling capacitance, the driver core can work properly in very compact designs with a high level of electromagnetic compatibility. The new ASIC chipset offers safe short circuit handling with soft switch off and fast mode detection. Thanks to integration, an MTBF rate of up to eight million hours at full load can be realised. With that feature set the SKYPER12 IGBT driver core offers the optimised platform for IGBT modules in the range from 80A - 300A. Reference circuits for SEMiX 5, MiniSKiiP Dual and SEMiX 3 Press-Fit support customers for efficient driver integration.
