Unterhaching/Germany, August 12, 2010 – Vincotech, a supplier of module-based solutions for power electronics, today announced the release of a new power module product family called flowIPM 1B. This new compact intelligent power module (IPM) integrates power semiconductors for rectifier, inverter, and power factor correction (PFC) with a driver circuit and sense resistors.
The new power module flowIPM pis destined primarily for embedded motor drives, for fans, pumps, professional power tools, and similar applications. Its integrated PFC circuit helps to achieve maximum power efficiency, while its compact design and sophisticated thermal management make it the solution of choice for tight spaces. This power module comes in a 17-mm high flowSCREW 2 housing measuring just 72 mm by 36 mm.
Unlike most other IPM designs, Vincotech’s flowIPM integrates not only the inverter, but also a rectifier, PFC circuit, and an entire driver circuit in a single power module, with no extra external components required. The integrated shunts of this intelligent power module enable ultra precise current sensing for the PFC and inverter.
The flowIPM 1B family comprises four types. 4A and 10A versions are available for the inverter section. The PFC circuit can be optionally equipped with a highly efficient SiC diode. Other options such as Press-fit technology or phase-change material are also available on demand.
Serial production is slated for June 2010, but flowIPM 1B samples are available now. More information on these new compact intelligent power modules please find here.
