Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced the coming launch of its SLIMDIPTM-W, a new high-performance intelligent power module (IPM) that will enable washing machines, air conditioners and various small-capacity motor drives to achieve reduced motor noise and consume less power. Sales of the SLIMDIP-W will begin on January 15, 2020.
1) Optimized high-speed-switching RC-IGBT enables high carrier-frequency drive for quieter and more efficient appliances
Improved reverse-conducting IGBT (RC-IGBT) is optimized for high-speed switching to reduce switching loss in high carrier-frequency drive, helping to lower motor noise.
Switching power loss is reduced by approx. 40% (Tj=125°C, Io(Arms)=5A) compared to that of existing SLIMDIP-L
2) Less noise enables downsizing and reduced total cost of inverter systems
Less noise compared to that of existing model allows use of fewer noise-suppressing components on circuit board for smaller, lower-cost inverter systems.
3) Flexible wiring pattern simplifies layout design of inverter systems
Positioning negative electrode (GND terminal) next to P-side bootstrap power supply realizes more flexible wiring-pattern design and smaller inverter systems.
