JAPAN: Mitsubishi Electric Corp. will launch a new series of transfer-mold-type, mini dual-inline-package intelligent power modules (DIPIPM) primarily for inverter drive systems of small-capacity motors, servos and other industrial equipment.
The modules feature embedded bootstrap diode (BSD) chips, embedded analog temperature voltage output (VOT) 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 (CSTBTTM) 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.
