Power modules designed as needed supported by expert engineering

Power modules designed as needed supported by expert engineering

Individually designed power modules supported by expert engineering: 10 A – 600 A

Nuremberg, 30 March 2011 - Semikron offers customer-specific power modules with individual circuit topologies, chip combinations and protection supported by expert engineering service. The modules are designed and integrated as required in special packaging matched for UPS, solar, motor drives, welding or traction applications with output power of up to 150 kW. Semikron is one of the top suppliers regarding response time and time to market.

Complex electrical topologies in compact housing with a high degree of pin out flexibility are realisable. Customers define specific electrical topologies, power ranges, chip technology and additional features such as temperature and current sensors for power modules needed for a specific application. Customer support is a given factor starting from the development phase to the installation of the power module in the application but also providing advice regarding the performance and cost-effectiveness.

The custom-made modules are manufactured in an optimised cellular manufacturing process where parts movement, set-up time and waiting time between operations are reduced to the minimum. The manufacturing cells allow for more flexibility and reaction time than production lines for high quantities. Small production quantities are therefore also realised effectively.

The custom-made modules are fully tested and qualified to meet the reliability standards specified by the customer. Additional to standard tests, a range of reliability and qualification programs such as thermal resistance measurement, static and dynamic characterization and 17 different qualification tests for more than 10.000 hours of test are available.
