How to Read an IGBT Module Datasheet
IGBT module datasheets are often a source of confusion. This webinar introduces the SEMIKRON datasheet for a typical industrial IGBT module, explaining each term and providing insight as to how it can be used. The content provides datasheet clarity for both entry-level and experienced engineers. We explain the difference between “maximum ratings” and “characteristics” and show the power designer which parameters are valuable for design and which points must be considered when comparing datasheets across manufacturers.
Demonstrating the Benefits of eMPack® Modules Using eMPack® Application Kit
SEMIKRON's eMPack power modules are perfect for automotive e-drive systems. SEMIKRON's Application Kits offer an easy way to get started with the eMPack in a short time in the customer's lab. There is no need to think about technical details like optimized gate resistors or any other kind of adaptation of the driver board to the eMPack modules. Available for different semiconductor technologies and blocking voltages the Application Kits reduce the time to get started significantly and are hence the perfect tool to evaluate different power ratings and semiconductor technologies.
eMPack® Power Module Family - Technology to Build Scalable and Highly Effcient Traction Inverters
Scalable, compact, highly reliable, efficient... these are some of the attributes passenger car manufactures require for e-drive system power electronics. Silicon Carbide (SiC) technology is the foundation for efficient power conversion but the specific features of SiC require an optimized module design with respect to electrical and thermal performance as well enhanced thermal cycling robustness. eMPack power modules based on Semikrons fully sintered direct pressed technology (DPD) is addressing these requirements.
Modules for High(er) Power Renewables and Drives
As the power of renewable applications grows, there is an increasing demand for high(er) power modules and IPMs. SEMIKRON presents their latest product line-up for renewable energies and high power drives in this webinar at PCIM Digital Days 2021. This webinar includes the increased power rating of SEMITRANS 10, the new SEMITRANS 10+ and the latest SEMITRANS 20 product family with highest power density, ideal for paralleling and scaling. The high power SKiiP 4 IPMs will also be showcased with the new High Performance Cooler.
Power Modules: Driving Tomorrow’s Smart Grid
The grid is changing from large, centralized power plants with passive loads to smaller, decentralized renewables with more active loads. With this more intelligent grid, power electronics driving the grid require higher efficiency and power density in a reliable package. During this PCIM webinar, SEMIKRON displays the latest developments enabled by generation 7 IGBTs and Silicon Carbide chipsets. For drives and UPS, SEMIKRON’s Generation 7 IGBT portfolio offers efficiencyin industrial standard packages. In applications requiring increased power density and efficiency, such as energy storage and EV charging, the latest SiC portfolio is now available. For Solar, achieve low cost and efficient designs by combining SiC and the latest IGBTs.
Push the Limits of Efficiency and Power Density for EV Charger Converters
EV Chargers require the smallest, most efficient converters at a competitive price point. Common knowledge says higher switching frequencies reduce filter size, but there are limitations to this principle. Switching devices, for instance, may become prohibitively expensive at extreme switching frequencies. With our new Silicon Carbide portfolio, SEMIKRON now has the tools to push these limits further. In this webinar, we compare power module selection with filter design. Additionally, we offer insights into our findings of converter development.
