IPM5 600V intelligent IGBTs are rugged intelligent modules
Alpha and Omega Semiconductor says its IPM5 power module series, 600V intelligent IGBTs (insulated gate bi-polar transistors) are optimised for efficiency and ruggedness in motor drive applications.
The intelligent power modules in the IPM5 series are compact and designed with AlphaIGBT technology integrated with gate driver ICs (integrated circuits), and high-density package technology for applications such as refrigerators, washing machines, and fan motors.
The Alpha and Omega Semiconductor’s IPM5 series is built upon the latest patent-pending package technology platform. It uses IGBT technology with fast turn-off and low VCE(SAT) that reduces the power losses incurred during conduction and switching, says the company. The multi-function gate driver ICs have wide-input voltage interface, over-current protection, and over-temperature protection and monitoring.
The IPM5 power modules are UL recognized to UL1557 File E345245.
The 5.0 and 10A 600V IPMs are immediately available in production quantities.
Alpha and Omega Semiconductor designs, develops and supplies power semiconductors, including power MOSFETs (metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors), IGBT, IPM and power ICs. Alpha and Omega Semiconductor integrates its discrete and IC semiconductor process technology, product design, and packaging expertise to develop its power management products. The portfolio targets high-volume applications, including portable computers, flat panel TVs, LED (light emitting diodes) lighting, smartphones, battery packs, consumer and industrial motor controls and power supplies for TVs, computers, servers and telecommunications equipment.
