First 1200V SPM from Fairchild delivers better thermal performance than competing solutions in a highly reliable and rugged package
SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 11, 2014 — Fairchild (NASDAQ: FCS), a leading global supplier of high performance power semiconductor solutions, today announced its 1200V Motion SPM® 2 modules for customers building high-voltage industrial applications. With motors responsible for more than 40 percent of the world’s power consumption, the new Smart Power Modules deliver on Fairchild’s vision of making the world a cleaner, smarter place by enabling simple and reliable design, extremely high thermal performance and full protection for systems using large 3-phase inverter motors for high energy efficiency.
Fairchild’s latest Smart Power Modules (SPM) integrate critical power management silicon components to help reduce board space and heatsink sizes, resulting in a compact, all-in-one solution for up to 7.5kW, high-voltage designs. Fairchild used the same Direct Bonding Copper (DBC) packaging technologies originally developed for space applications to deliver a junction-to-case thermal resistance that is 15 percent lower than competing solutions. It also improves overall system reliability for much smoother motor control functions in products such as industrial-grade heating, ventilation, and air conditioning equipment, as well as pumps and factory automation systems.
Fairchild is exhibiting at Electronica 2014 in Munich, Germany from Nov. 11 to 14 in Booth A4.506. Technical experts are available to discuss and answer questions about the 1200V Motion SPM 2 and other energy efficient solutions.
“Inverter systems can control motor speed and power according to load conditions, which can result in a 30-to-50 percent energy savings compared to non-inverter fixed speed control,” said Taehoon Kim, vice president of high-voltage solutions at Fairchild. “We built the 1200V SPM® 2 series so that customers can have better functionality with ease of design, all while offering best-in-class thermal performance and ruggedness for demanding environmental conditions.”
In a single, rugged package, the Motion SPM® 2 series for 1200V 3-phase inverter designs with currents of up to 35A integrates the following:
- 1200V NPT Trench IGBTs
- Bootstrap Diodes
- Low-voltage and High-voltage Driver ICs
- NTC Thermister
- Full protection suite
Please visit the 1200V Motion SPM 2 Series Web page to learn more about design tools, order free samples and purchase production devices. 10A devices (FNA21012A) are available in full production now. 25A and 35A devices are scheduled for full production release at the end of Q4 2014.
