IGBT Driver with Optical Interface Saves External SensorsNovember 04, 2016 by SEMIKRON
SKYPER Prime O is an IGBT driver with optical interface and galvanically insulated temperature and DC link signals.
SKYPER Prime O is an IGBT driver with optical interface and galvanically insulated temperature and DC link signals. SKYPER Prime O is designed and qualified with the IGBT module SEMITRANS10 and offers an Plug & Play bundle with improved SOA characteristic. This saves costly qualification and redesign loops and at the same time offers significant performance advantages in various applications.
SKYPER Prime O offers galvanically isolated, highly accurate DC-link and temperature signals as a PWM signal to the controller. So very compact high power inverters can be built without costly sense circuits, cabling effort or power supplies. In addition, second source requirements are covered, both on driver and on module side. Electrical and optical interfaces are available.
SEMIKRON is one of the world's leading manufacturers of power modules and systems primarily in the medium output range (approx. 2 kW up to 10 MW). Our products are at the heart of modern energy efficient motor drives and industrial automation systems. Further application areas include power supplies, renewable energies (wind and solar power) and electric vehicles (private cars, vans, buses, lorries, forklift trucks, and more). SEMIKRON's innovative power electronic products enable our customers to develop smaller, more energy efficient power electronic systems. These systems in turn reduce the global energy demand.
