Panasonic Presents Solutions For Automotive And Industrial Applications At PCIM


Panasonic Industry Europe (PIEU), the European supplier for automotive and industrial components and solutions presented its latest technology portfolio at PCIM. Strong innovations in the fields of wide bandgap semiconductors, assembly technology and passive components technology form the basis of Panasonic unique position as the solution partner addressing the broadest range of challenges of the modern power electronic design.

Portfolio overview:

• X-GaN, new totem pole PFC and active clamp flyback reference designs

• GaN bi-directional switches and 3 levels inverter

• SiC modules and current sensors for xEV powertrain

• Graphite based thermal interface materials

• Hybrid and film capacitors, power choke coils

• Polymer capacitors for energy storage

X-GaN transistors and new reference designs

Panasonic X-GaN transistors provide superior switching performance and high reliability and robustness, thanks to their fast switching, highly conductive structure that suppresses current collapse. These benefits are demonstrated in new reference designs of a 3kW totem pole PFC and of a 65W active clamped flyback AC adapter.

GaN bi-directional switches

Panasonic has developed a single chip GaN bi-directional switch capable of operating in 4 quadrants, by adopting an innovative dual gate device structure. This device enables a significant reduction of conduction losses and of the number of components needed in topologies such as multilevel inverters, matrix converters and Vienna rectifiers.
