Semikron Generation 7 IGBTs for motor drives

Tuesday, 25 June, 2019 | Supplied by: Semikron Pty Ltd



The Generation 7 IGBTs, from Semikron, are said to represent the latest in IGBT chip technology. They are specifically designed to match the requirements of motor drive applications.

The IGBTs come with a lower forward voltage drop than previous generations and deliver optimised switching performance. Due to roughly 25% smaller chips, higher nominal currents can fit into existing power module packages.

In application, the IGBT 7 provides reduced power losses or increased maximum output power and power density. This translates into lower system costs.

Semikron will initially release the Generation 7 IGBTs with conventional motor drive topologies: CIB (converter-inverter-brake), six-pack and half-bridge configurations. For low and medium power drives, MiniSKiiP and SEMITOP E1/E2 are the first available choice. For higher power classes, IGBT 7 is available in SEMiX 3 press-fit and SEMiX 6 press-fit. More power modules are to follow.
