Humidity robustness is one of the main concerns of IGBT modules since the modules are not hermetically sealed. IGBT modules are generally filled with silicone gel which has a filter effect. Condensation amount at various condensation test conditions is described in this paper based on silicone gel humidity absorption behavior investigation.
“Easy Design of 1500 VDC Renewable Inverter with Higher Power Density Enabled by New 2.0 kV Class LV100 IGBT Module” – this is the subject our authors Thomas Radke, Nils Soltau and Satoshi Miyahara are addressing in our cover story in Bodo’s Power Systems in September.
“Influence of IGBT and diode parameters on the current sharing and switching-waveform characteristics of parallel-connected power modules” is one of our themes this week at the EPE’22 conference in Hannover, Germany.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to the readers of the trade medium Elektronik who gave their vote to our SLIMDIP™ in the “Power” category of the annual “Products of the Year” competition. We would also like to thank the editorial staff of WEKA FACHMEDIEN GmbH for this annual initiative.

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced that it will launch a 50W silicon radio-frequency (RF) high-power metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) module for use in high-frequency power amplifiers of commercial two-way radios on August 1. The model, which offers an industry-leading 50W power output in the 763MHz to 870MHz band and high total efficiency of 40%, is expected to help expand radio communication range and reduce power consumption.
Since 1997, Mitsubishi Electric pioneered the mass production of power devices for hybrid and electric vehicles with a proven track record of more than 22 million xEVs on the road.
Mitsubishi Electric is a pioneer and world leader in the design and production of transfer molded IPMs, with a cumulative production level for DIPIPMs of 1 billion units since 1997, contributing to energy saving and helping to protect the environment.
