ENPOWER Adopts Infineon Discrete IGBT EDT2 Devices

News
Chinese supplier of automotive inverters first to integrate latest 750 V automotive-grade IGBTs

Zhuhai ENPOWER Electric, a China based leading supplier of inverters for the automotive industry, is the first to integrate the latest 750 V automotive-grade IGBTs AIKQ120N75CP2 and AIKQ200N75CP2 from Infineon Technologies.

The discrete IGBT EDT2 devices in TO-247PLUS package are said to enable performance boosts and system cost savings in main inverter applications and DC link discharge switches of electric vehicles. Additionally, they offer greater design freedom for achieving system integration targets.

“ENPOWER firmly follows the technology route of designing motor control units (MCUs) with discrete components, and continuously develops products that are both good and cost-advantageous, therefore to always maintain the competitive advantage of our MCUs in the market,” said Liu Hongxin, ENPOWER's R&D director of MCU. “Infineon's industry-leading discrete IGBTs are compatible with the last generation in terms of packaging. Together with the high current density, ultra-low saturation voltage drop and very good parallel performance, power density of our products has increased by more than 20 percent, further improving competitiveness of our products.”

“We are very happy about this close and successful collaboration with ENPOWER. This project further highlights our strong position in the inverter application,“ said Robert Hermann, product line head for Automotive High Power Discretes and Chips at Infineon. “Leveraging our technology expertise and system understanding allows us to bring innovative solutions to the market perfectly matching customers' needs.”

The EDT2 technology is available in a TO247 package optimised for automotive discrete traction inverters. The new 120 A and 200 A (at 100°C) product variants expand Infineon's portfolio of discrete high-voltage devices for automotive applications.
