Future Electronics Features the STK55xU3xxx-E Family of High Thermal Performance and Efficiency Integrated Power Modules from ON Semiconductor

Montreal, Canada – July 15, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, announces immediate availability of ON Semiconductor’s STK55xU3xxx-E family of high thermal performance and efficiency integrated power modules.

ON Semiconductor has expanded its high voltage IPM portfolio with the STK55xU3xxx-E family. With a power range of 10A to 50A in SIP and DIP packaging, the new IPMs integrate a complete 3-phase inverter including the gate drive circuit. The company’s newest IGBT and driver technologies are also incorporated in the new family of IPMs, minimizing switching losses of the module.

The modules are based on the proprietary Insulated Metal Substrate Technology (IMST) which exhibits many benefits over existing standard frame types including excellent thermal coupling and response, higher reliability, lower power losses, faster temperature monitoring and reduced switching surges. IMST enables assembly of discrete passive components (resistors, capacitors); discrete active components (diodes, transistors); and more complex devices (gate drivers, DSPs logic) into high integrated modules.

Features include a 3-phase power MOS/IGBT bridge, on-board gate drivers, IC low voltage flag, overcurrent flag, an on-board current sensor, and an on-board temperature sensor.

Applications include motor control systems, industrial/general control systems, HVAC, clothes washers/dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, industrial motors, and fans.
