The SKiM module can increase the reliability of inverters by several factors, even under substantial active and passive temperature swings. In addition to sintered chips, pressure contacts and spring technology, the SKiM63/93 featuring AlCu-bonded diodes and high performance thermal grease delivers as much as 23.3% better performance with the same chip set and same lifetime or twice the power cycling capability than standard sinter modules.
SKiM® Product Family
The SKiM 4/5 offers a wide variety of 6-pack and 3-level topologies and is designed as a highly reliable, baseplate-less module that meets the high demands of shock and vibration stability, as well as high temperature capability and service life.
Due to new thermal interface material and AlCu-bonded diodes the new SKiM 63/93 module can achieve an improvement of power density and is specially designed for the requirements of automotive applications.

The SKiM 63/93 is designed for applications that require high inverter reliability. This applies first and foremost to automotive applications such as electric powertrains in electric utility vehicles, heavy-duty construction machinery and tractors. It can also provide leading-edge performance in super sports and race cars. The SKiM 4/5 with its proven 3-level topologies can be found in ambitious applications such as solar and UPS.
SKiM® Product Range
The SKiM 4/5 modules are available as sixpack, 3-level (NPC and TNPC) configurations with nominal currents from 200A to 600A. The SKiM 63/93 offers 3-phase inverter topologies at 600V, 1200V and 1700V. The power ranges from 20kW to 180kW with nominal currents of 300A to 900A. Modules in buck and boost configuration for 1200V/600A round off the portfolio. Driver solutions are available as does an optimised water cooler for fast and customer-friendly evaluation. In addition, paralleling boards for a simple and powerful half-bridge configuration are also available.
