IGBT power modules from Semikron

SEMIKRON has added a new topology for use in three-level inverters to its SEMITOP IGBT product range. The topology integrates IGBT technology with lower switching and conduction losses to produce losses 60 percent lower than two-level inverters. The SEMITOP module has been designed for low commutation inductivity compared to half-bridge modules. The improved efficiency of the DC/AC conversion is intended for UPS applications in the power range fr...

Digital drivers from Semikron offer versatile power control

Semikron has announced a new generation of IGBT drivers based on full digital signal processing. The SKYPER 52 allows for the transmission of isolated control signals and a range of configurable protection schemes, enabling engineers to design without the need to add isolated circuitry. The result is fewer system components and improved overall system reliability.

Very Compact Thyristor Modules

SEMIKRON has introduced its SEMiSTART family of anti-parallel uninsulated thyristor modules, which has been designed specifically for use in soft-start devices. The modules are extremely compact. For example, a 400kW soft-starter featuring SEMiSTART is only one-sixth of the volume of the same device using conventional capsule thyristors. In addition, by using pressure contact technology and double-sided chip cooling, these new modules can withsta...
