ON Semiconductor unveiled its most compact 650 V, 50 A automotive qualified intelligent power module at electronica in Munich this week.
The power module is used for controlling vehicle air conditioning compressors.
The semiconductor giant’s FAM65V05DF1 integrates insulated-gate bipolar transistors, freewheeling diodes, and gate drivers in an automotive-qualified 12cm2 package – about 40 percent smaller than similar modules comprised of multiple discrete components, ON said in a statement.
The 27-pin auto smart power module is optimized for auxiliary inverter in hybrid and electric vehicle applications. It has a transfer molded double dual inline package outline.
“The device greatly simplifies and shortens the process of designing the power stages of high-voltage automotive auxiliary inverters for A/C compressors and oil pumps – applications that must comply with tight space constraints,” said an ON statement.
The company has a booth at electronica to display its automotive, Internet of Things, power-management, and motor control products.
ON recently acquire Fairchild Semiconductor to expand its high- and medium-voltage devices.
