Infineon boosts same-footprint 1200V power module current by 50%
EconoPIM modules are characterized by a high integration of different functionalities. For example, each contains a three-phase rectifier, a brake chopper, a three-phase inverter and a NTC thermistor for temperature measurement. With a blocking voltage of 1200V, the EconoPIM 3 reaches a maximum current rating of 150A – the highest current in the market for this design.
The housing is equipped with a base plate and corresponds to the industrial standard regarding dimensions. It can therefore easily be implemented as a drop-in replacement for already existing designs. When used in drives, the EconoPIM 3 therefore allows up to 30% more output power with the same footprint. The modules integrate the IGBT4 chip with Trenchstop technology.
