Tokyo, Japan, June 1, 2012 – Fuji Electric Co., Ltd., announced today that it has developed EasyPIMTM insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) modules*1 fitted with 6th-generation IGBT chips and plans to commence a sales release of this new product lineup. EasyPIMTM modules are used in equipment such as general-purpose inverters equipped in industrial-use air conditioners. The modules can enable machinery to be made smaller and reduce energy consumption.
Fuji Electric has expanded its product lineup in order to increase compatibility with products made by Infineon Technologies AG, a major power semiconductor company in Germany, and is marketing them worldwide. (*1EasyPIMTM is a trademark of Infineon Technologies AG, Germany). Fitted with 6th-generation IGBT chips, the modules help enable miniaturization*2 of machinery and achieve low power loss. *3. The modules are designed with two types of pins—press fit pins (used in a method for attaching pins to substrates by applying pressure, not using solder) and solder pins (for compatibility with various kinds of substrates). The size is 25% smaller than previous Fuji Electric models, and the power loss is 20% less than previous Fuji Electric models.
