Reduced Thermal Resistance with Latest Phase Change TIM
Phase Change TIM offers a simplified manufacturing process, but generally has a higher thermal resistance than paste. SEMIKRON, determined to find the best solution, researched which Phase Change Material offers the best benefits to our power modules. We found a solution, which competes with even the latest High Performance Thermal Paste.
Gate Driver Principles, Considerations and Selection Process
No single IGBT gate driver meets every specific application. Therefore, in his webinar on October 26, Adyatmika Darmanandana will explain several considerations for selection and application of gate drivers. This information will help power electronics engineers choose the correct drivers and related components.
Efficient Green Hydrogen Production with Power Electronic Stacks
Producing green hydrogen calls for efficient water electrolysis. Reduced current ripple and grid harmonics increase water electrolysis efficiency; however, this often requires flexibility from power electronics. SEMIKRON offers extensive expertise to support power supply development for efficient green hydrogen production. In this webinar, Timo Gassauer explains the wide range of products, assemblies and services that SEMIKRON can provide.
Thermal Resistance of Power Modules
Understanding how heat flows out of a power module is crucial for power design. This webinar explains how thermal resistance is derived by a power module manufacturer, some techniques used for measurement, and how the values given in a datasheet can vary between module types and manufacturers. Additionally, the concept of thermal coupling and how operating modes influence thermal resistance will be discussed. This webinar is a natural extension to the previous webinar “How to Read an IGBT Datasheet.”
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.
