Along with the rapid growth of the battery electric vehicles across the world, hydrogen-powered fuel-cell electric vehicles are on the same path to decarbonize many modes of modern transportation. Since the energy system becomes more reliant on renewables, hydrogen will play a very important role in the generation and storage of green power.
Through its technological innovations for automotive, IT, and renewable energy applications Leapers Semiconductor aims to move humanity forward to the better and greener future. Leapers Semiconductor strives to provide the most reliable solutions for power electronics engineers across the spectrum of industries and applications. That is why Leapers Semiconductor introduced to the market its latest F0 series Hybrid power modules.
F0 series are 1200 V hybrid power modules with press-fit terminals which integrate high performance IGBT chips and SiC diodes (figure 1). F0 series Hybrid power modules are specifically designed for:
· Solar Inverters
· Fuel-Cell DC/DC Converters
· Energy Storage Systems
Fig.1. F0 Series Hybrid Power Modules
To produce highly reliable F0 series Hybrid power modules Leapers Semiconductor uses latest generation IGBT chips and silicon carbide diodes produced in Japan. Besides F0 hybrid modules feature Si3N4 AMB substrates which combine best mechanical robustness with excellent heat dissipation properties featuring very high-power densities.
Among other features F0 series Hybrid power modules offer:
ØBlocking voltage 1200 V
ØVery low saturation voltage VCE (sat)
Ø1600 V bypass and anti-parallel diodes
ØLow inductive design
ØLow thermal resistance
Ø175°C maximum junction temperature
At the moment Leapers Semiconductor offersF0 series Hybrid power modules as a 50A Dual Boost (figure 2) with blocking voltage of 1200V.
