The automotive power module platform
eMPack® Power Module – High Performance Package for E-mobility
The transition from full vehicle platforms to full battery electric vehicle architectures is progressing rapidly. These architectures will require scalable power electronics solutions for electric drive systems (EDS) that are capable of covering a wide power range and are cost-effective at the same time, resulting in an important competitive advantage for vehicle manufacturers.
SEMIKRON’s new power module platform eMPack, which is based on a common module concept, is being developed for EDS inverter architectures covering a power range from 100kW up to 750kW.
eMPack covers 400V and 800V battery system applications. The combination of silicon carbide technology with SEMIKRON’s fully sintered, low stray inductance Direct Pressed Die Technology (DPD) enables unmatched power densities combined with high reliability for automotive application.
- Silicon Carbide MOSFET, Full Silicon Carbide technology
- 750V / 1200V Sixpack compatible package delivering up to 900ARMS
- Double Sided Sintering package for automotive grade reliability
- Low thermal resistance thanks to DPD technology
- Flexible cooler arrangements
- 2.5nH package stray inductance including terminals
Power Electronics for Vehicles
eMPack® – Technology Driving eMobility
Getting Started with the eMPack® Application Kit
SEMIKRON set up an Application Kit for eMPack modules for evaluation purposes. It helps users run performance measurements in the lab, build up first demonstration inverters, adjust control algorithms and give some guidance for building an automotive inverter.
Using the eMPack Application Kit brings the following major advantages:
- No wasted time developing own adaptor PCBs
- No need for configuration of any kind (e.g. gate resistors)
- Plug-and-Play – Test engineers can plug into the Application Kit and start measurements
Building Highly Efficient Traction Inverters
Scalable, compact, highly reliable, efficient... these are some of the attributes passenger car manufactures require for e-drive system power electronics. The eMPack power module family based on fully sintered direct pressed technology (DPD) is addressing these requirements.
Benefits of Using the eMPack® Application Kit
SEMIKRON's Application Kits offer an easy way to get started with the eMPack in a short time in the customer's lab. Available for different semiconductor technologies and blocking voltages the Application Kits are the perfect tool to evaluate different power ratings and semiconductor technologies.
