ON Semiconductor continues to expand its portfolio for industrial motor drive applications, to further help customers solve their specific design challenges. Motor drive systems are proliferating along with industrial automation and robotics . These systems require energy efficiency, precise measurement, accurate control, and high reliability within harsh industrial environments. Effective semiconductor development for industrial motor drive requires advanced design, ability to integrate active and passive components, sophisticated packaging including substrate material, and high quality and reliability standards.
ON Semiconductor announced the NXH25C120L2C2, NXH35C120L2C2/2C2E, and NXH50C120L2C2E, which are 25, 35, and 50 Ampere versions of Transfer-Molded Power Integrated Modules (TM-PIM) for 1200 Volt (V) applications. They are available in Converter-Inverter-Brake (CIB) and Converter-Inverter (CI) configurations. The modules consist of six 1200 V IGBTs, six 1600 V rectifiers, and an NTC thermistor for system level temperature monitoring; the CIB versions use an additional 1200 V IGBT coupled with a diode (more info).
