Alpha and Omega Semiconductor Unveils New 600V Intelligent IGBT Power Module IPM5 Series



Optimized for high efficiency and ruggedness in motor drive applications

 Alpha and Omega Semiconductor Limited (AOS) (Nasdaq: AOSL), a designer, developer and global supplier of a broad range of power semiconductors and power ICs, today announced the release of its intelligent power module, IPM5 series. Its compact size is optimized to deliver excellent efficiency and ruggedness. The IPM5 is a reliable module system designed with AlphaIGBT™ technology integrated with high functional gate driver ICs, and high-density package technology for applications such as refrigerators, washing machines, and fan motors.

The IPM5 series is built upon the latest patent-pending package technology platform and features an industry-leading IGBT technology with fast turn-off and low VCE(SAT) that reduces the power losses incurred during conduction and switching. It is integrated with multi-function gate driver ICs with features such as wide-input voltage interface, over-current protection, and over-temperature protection and monitoring.

“IPM-driven inverters have been widely used in home appliances and 3-phase-motor-drive applications due to global energy saving regulations. IPM5 was developed to meet these requirements while offering the ideal combination of higher efficiency, high ruggedness and better EMI performance,” said Dr. Brian Suh, Vice President of IGBT/IPM product line at AOS.
