Vincotech today reiterated the benefits of its practice of sourcing semiconductors from several vendors. This supplier of module-based solutions for power electronics pointed out that its multiple sourcing strategy goes to protect customers’ business interests by mitigating risks in the supply chain.
A Safer Supply Chain with Vincotech’s Multi-sourced Offering
Vincotech has qualified all leading manufacturers under an open and flexible vendor policy. This also
gives customers the freedom of choice and flexibility to choose the chipset – that is, the combination
of IGBT and diode – that best fits the application and its unique requirements. Customers enjoy the
benefits of a power module that strikes the best balance of price and performance for industrial and
embedded drives and solar, energy storage and EV charger applications.
A simulation tool serves to optimize the switching pair. It draws on a database that holds all the characterization information for each component. This bar chart, for example, shows a comparison of loss breakdown and module cost for various diodes paired with a high-speed IGBT in a motor drive sixpack operating at 16 kHz. In this example, a high-speed IGBT paired with tandem diodes achieves the best/performance ratio.
