AOS: new 600V intelligent IGBT power module IPM5 Series

Posted 20 April 2017

Alpha and Omega Semiconductor (AOS) announced the release of its intelligent power module, IPM5 series optimized to deliver efficiency and ruggedness. The IPM5 is a module system designed with AlphaIGBT technology integrated with multi-function gate driver ICs with features such as wide-input voltage interface, over-current protection, and over-temperature protection and monitoring. The IPM5 series is built upon the latest compact patent-pending package technology platform and features a IGBT technology with fast turn-off and low VCE(SAT) that reduces the power losses incurred during conduction and switching. The 3-phase inverter module includes HVIC drivers and built-in bootstrap diodes.

IPM5 was developed to meet the requirements of IPM-driven inverters that have been widely used in 3-phase-motor-drive and home appliances application such as refrigerators, washing machines and fan motors.
