Fairchild Semiconductor introduces ten highly efficient, integrated Motion-SPM power modules for home appliances and industrial motors up to the 3kW power range. Integrating fully tested components––three HVICs, one LVIC, six NPT IGBTs, six FRDs and three bootstrap diodes––into a compact 44mm x 26.8mm Mini-DIP package, these Motion-SPM modules offer superior inverter-based control for energy-efficient three-phase motors. Replacing as many as 22 discrete components, these products are instrumental in reducing board space, decreasing manufacturing costs, speeding time-to-market and increasing system reliability.
“Fairchild continues to innovate its product offering by providing leading SPM® power module solutions,” said Taehoon Kim, vice president of Fairchild’s Functional Power Solutions. “We have integrated three bootstrap diodes with bootstrap resistor characteristics into currently available SPM modules to make a simpler and smaller board design possible, eliminating six additional external components. These modules feature NPT IGBTs that provide optimal trade-offs between conduction losses and switching losses and high guaranteed junction temperature to improve system efficiency and reliability. Fairchild’s Motion-SPM power modules are ideal solutions for energy- and cost-restricted motor applications.”

These highly integrated devices utilize full molded or Direct Bonded Copper (DBC)-based package technology. A Motion-SPM product’s innovative DBC-based Mini-DIP package provides extremely low thermal resistance (FSBB30CH60B (600V/30A): Rth(j-c), IGBT = 1.17°C/W).

These Motion-SPM products utilize lead-free (Pb-free) terminals and have been characterized for moisture sensitivity in accordance with the Pb-free reflow requirements of the joint IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-020. All of Fairchild’s products are designed to meet the requirements of the European Union’s Directive on the restriction of the use of certain substances (RoHS).
