The new module combines Vishay Ultrafast Trench IGBTs, efficient HEXFRED® and FRED Pt® diode technologies, and a thermistor for easy thermal management, in a single EMIPAK-2B package. It therefore offers a complete, integrated solution for inverters based on three-level neutral point clamp topologies and for interleaved multiple-channel double-boost converters implementing maximum powerpoint tracking.
The high level of integration in the 15A VS-ETL015y120H helps designers to reduce time to market and improve system performance.
The VS-ETL015y120H features a collector-to-emitter breakdown voltage of 1,200V, high-efficiency silicon boost diodes, integrated 62A bypass diodes, and short-circuit full-current reverse-polarity protection diodes.
The power module’s solderless PressFit technology allows for easy PCB mounting, while an exposed substrate provides for low thermal resistance. The device also has low internal inductance and switching losses, while supporting operating frequencies up to 20kHz. Its optimised layout helps to minimise stray parameters for better EMI performance.
