This module is based on its predecessor МТ3-540-18-А2. The higher power density was achieved by upgrading the semiconductor element with minimal changes to other design elements. Specifically, the module was designed with a new topology increasing the active cathode area by 10%, reduced thickness of the diffusion element and improved diffusion profile.

The extensive research and testing program behind these changes allowed to achieve previously unavailable parameters. The new module features lower losses in open state, lower thermal junction-case resistance, and higher surge current. Mean current in open state ITAV increased by 20% to 700A. Repetitive peak off-state and reverse voltage VDRM/ VRRM values are 1400-1800 V.

The complete technical specifications are as follows:

VDRM/ VRRM [V]: 1400-1800
IFAV/ITAV (Tс,°C) [A]: 700(80)
VFM/VTM (Tc=25°С) [V]: 1.65
IFM/ITM (Tc=25°С) [A]: 2198
VT(TO)/Tjmax [V]: 0.8
rT/Tjmax [mΩ]: 0.35
tq [μs]: 250
Tjmax [°С]: 130
Rthjc [°С/W]: 0.051
Package: M.A2
Baseplate width/length [mm]: 60/124
Design: dual component
Configuration: thyristor-thyristor, thyristor-diode


Datasheet for the new module is available here. If you would like to receive more information, request a quotation or ask for a technical advice, please contact our sales department by phone +7 4862 440456 or email [email protected].


About Proton-Electrotex

Proton-Electrotex is one of the Russian leaders in the design and manufacture of power semiconductor diodes, thyristors, modules, coolers, IGBTs (IGBTs), as well as power units for use in various electric energy converters. The company was founded and began production in 1996 on the leased premises of the Proton plant. Since then, Proton-Electrotex has developed its own infrastructure for the entire production cycle. Production is equipped with modern production lines, measuring equipment of our own production and areas for “clean technologies” with full compliance with the requirements for electronic products and microelectronics.
