Where is a NTC mounted in a module?

Please contact Fuji Electric Corp. of America or your local sales representative or distributor to answer your question.

How can we reduce radiation noise?

Radiation noise can be reduced through methods such as reducing the loop current area where noise is generated, or adjusting the gate resistance. For details, refer to IGBT’s Application Manual Chapter 10.

How can we reduce conductive noise?

“Conductive noise can be reduced through methods such as adding an LC filter on the AC power side, adding a ferrite core, or adjusting the gate resistance to suppress dv/dt at the time of switching. For details, refer to IGBT’s Application Manual Chapter 10.”

What types of noise are generated at an inverter unit that has a power semiconductor device built in?

There are two types of noise: conductive noise (noise terminal voltage) and radiation noise. Conductive noise propagates over a conductor or earth wire in a main circuit. It is divided into two groups: normal mode and common mode. Radiation noise is generated within a device and emitted into the air because the device wiring or […]

Is there ΔTc power cycle curve?

Please contact Fuji Electric Corp. of America or your local sales representative or distributor to answer your question.

Have Fuji semiconductor parts an UL certification?

Power semiconductor modules of Fuji Electric Corp. of America have been certified with UL standard 1557, category code QQQX2 (File No. E82988). The relevant model types can be found on the UL website’s (http://japan.ul.com/) Online Certifications Directory.

Are Fuji semiconductor parts compliant with REACH regulations?

Please contact Fuji Electric Corp. of America or your local sales representative or distributor to answer your question.

Where can we obtain an RoHS Certificate of Conformity (CoC)?

Please contact Fuji Electric Corp. of America or your local sales representative or distributor to answer your question.

How do I read a lot number?

The first digit represents the year of manufacture, the second digit is the month of manufacture, and the remaining 3 to 4 digits are the lot number.

Is there a lifetime for IGBT modules?

Yes. The main factors impacting the IGBT module’s life expectancy are temperature gaps involving the element’s junction temperature Tj, and increase and decrease of case temperature Tc. Refer to technical documents describing the relationship of ΔTj and ΔTc with the device life expectancy.
