Infineon Technologies expands its 62 mm IGBT modules to offer higher power density without increasing package size. The modules provide a larger chip area and an adapted DCB substrate in the 62-mm package. Typical applications for modules with 1,200 V blocking voltage are drives, solar inverters and uninterruptible power supply (UPS) as well as medium voltage drives for modules with 1,700 V blocking voltage.
With a blocking voltage of 1,200 V, the 62-mm module reaches a maximum current rating of 600 A. At 1,700 V blocking voltage, the maximum current rating is 500 A. The package is equipped with a base plate size that corresponds to the industrial standard and can be integrated into existing designs. The portfolio uses the IGBT4 that offers high robustness and reliability.
Two versions of the new power modules are also available in the common emitter configuration, with which a 3-level topology (NPC2) can be set up. This allows an efficient use in solar and UPS applications where the demand for power is high.
The power modules are in volume production, and are also available with pre-applied thermal interface material. More information is available at www.infineon.com/new62mm
