modules feature embedded bootstrap diode chips, embedded analog temperature voltage output and a 5A-50A current rating. Sales begin April 25.
Motor drive inverter systems have been evolving rapidly in recent years in response to increasing demands for energy savings. Mitsubishi Electric's new 5A-50A industrial Mini DIPIPM series uses sixth-generation IGBT chips featuring the carrier-stored trench-gate bipolar transistor structure, a special feature of Mitsubishi Electric IGBT chips, as well as integrated external components such as BSD, current-limiting resistors and thermistors, to reduce the power consumption, size and cost of small-capacity inverter systems.
1) Reduced power consumption, size and cost for small-capacity inverter systems
- Sixth-generation IGBT chips featuring the CSTBT structure enable power loss to be reduced by about 10% compared to Mitsubishi Electric's existing Mini DIPIPM products (Mini DIPIPM Ver. 3 series with 5A-15A current rating and Mini DIPIPM Ver. 4 series with 20A-50A current rating).
- Reduced size of external components (BSD, BSR and thermistor) by incorporating VOT and BSD with current-limiting resistor.
- External dimensions compatible with Mitsubishi Electric's existing Mini DIPIPM products.
2) Current rating of 50A in PSS50S71F6 Mini DIPIPM package
- External dimensions (31.0 x 52.5mm) reduced 34% compared to Mitsubishi Electric's existing PS21869-* Large DIPIPM Ver.3 series (31.0 x 79.0mm) due to the use of insulation sheet structure package for excellent thermal dissipation.
The Mini DIPIPM Series is compliant with the European Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS).
