Robust IGBT driving technology
SEMIKRON IGBT driver family
SEMIKRON offers two different IGBT driver families for any application. Driver cores from the SKHI and SKYPER family can be optimized using adapter boards for each module type. Drivers such as the SKYPER Prime offer a fully qualified plug & play solution, saving time and costs in application. The SKYPER family with 1W to 10W output power per channel covers the whole range of inverters from 30kW to 2MW. The high integration level of SEMIKRON’s new ASIC chipset ensures safe IGBT gate control throughout the entire lifecycle. Short circuits are managed very fast by separate error channels.
SoftOff and over voltage feedback avoid dangerous over voltages. The mixed signal ASICs guarantee minimum tolerances over the full temperature range. MLI or paralleled IGBT topologies are managed thanks to adjustable error management. With an optimized interface and adjustable filter settings, the SKYPER family operates safely in noisy environments. The SEMIKRON adapter boards enable a wide range of inverter platforms to be built using various types of IGBT modules. The latest highlights are the SKYPER 12 driver core and the plug & play driver SKYPER Prime that features electrical and optical interfaces. SKYPER 12 is the latest driver core which delivers 20A output but is smaller than a matchbox. Thanks to its features and robustness, this driver is the perfect solution for anything from simple drives to ambitious interleaved applications. The SKYPER Prime offers integrated insulated DC link and temperature measurement and can help the customer reduce system costs significantly.
