MIPAQ - IGBT Modules - Infineon

MIPAQ - IGBT Modules - Infineon

MIPAQ is a brandnew functional product family within Infineon's IGBT (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor) modules portfolio and as such dedicated to useful integration of electronics to power modules

The MIPAQ IGBT modules family counts 3 members with different levels of electronics integration/

One of the first family members is MIPAQ sense which integrates an IGBT sixpack, and fully digital current measurement with galvanically insulated output signals. The measurement principle uses the Sigma Delta method.

Current ratings of 50A, 75A and 100A are available.

Technical Features

  • PIM & PACK configurations
  • 1200V
  • Integrated special shunt
  • RoHs compliant
  • Integrated Sigma/Delta converter for current measurement
  • NTC included
  • 50A, 75A, 100A (PACK)
  • 50 A (PIM)

Infineon Technologies - Produces devices for applications including memory, power, microcontrollers, communications, and consumer products.
