South Portland, Maine—Fairchild's FPDB20PH60 , FPDB30PH60, and FPDB50PH60 highly integrated Smart Power Modules deliver full-switching power factor correction (PFC) to 99 percent for 3-6 kW motor drive applications. Each PFC-SPM device integrates two fast-recovery diodes, two freewheeling diodes, two IGBTs, a gate-driver IC, a shunt resistor, and a thermistor into a 44-by-26.8 mm package—thus cutting board space requirements in half over discrete solutions, according to the company.
"These modules optimize thermal efficiency by utilizing Fairchild's Direct Bonded Copper (DBC)-based transfer-molded packaging technology," said Taehoon Kim, vice president of the Functional Power Group. "They also incorporate existing SMPS IGBT and Stealth diode technology to significantly reduce power losses."
The devices integrate a thermistor for temperature monitoring and a shunt resistor for current sensing. The integrated gate-drive IC includes under-voltage (UV) and over-current (OC) protection. The modules provide a 2500 VRMS (minimum) isolation. Its packaging complies with basic creepage and clearance spacing for UL certification No. E209204.
The FPDB20PH60 (600 volts/20 amps), FPDB30PH60 (600 volts/30 amps) and the FPDB50PH60 (600 volts/50 amps) are available in lead (Pb)-free Mini-DIP packages. These products meet or exceed the requirements of the joint IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-020C and are compliant with the European Union requirements now in effect.
