IGBT drivers are a vital device required between power transistors and controllers. Ultimately, the electronic drive circuit will determine the performance of an IGBT which is why the performance of the driver is closely linked to the reliability of a converter solution. Choosing the wrong driver can result in damaged modules and can cause the entire system to malfunction.
The SKYPER family with 1W to 10W output power per channel covers the whole range of inverters from 30kW to 2MW. The high integration level of Semikron's new ASIC chipset ensures safe IGBT gate control throughout the entire lifecycle. Short circuits are managed very fast by separate error channels and drive three times longer.
The SoftOff and over- voltage feedback helps to avoid dangerous over-voltages. The mixed signal ASICs guarantee minimum tolerances over the full temperature range. MLI or paralleled IGBT topologies are managed thanks to adjustable error management. With an optimised interface and adjustable filter settings, the SKYPER IGBT driver family survives external interferences over 100% of IEC standards. Semikron's SKYPER family operates safely in noisy environments and the adapter boards enable a wide range of inverter platforms to be built using various types of IGBT modules.
The latest highlights are the SKYPER 12 driver core and the plug and play driver SKYPER Prime that features electrical and optical interfaces. Semikron's SKYPER 12 is the latest driver core which delivers 20A output but is smaller than a matchbox. Thanks to its features and robustness, this driver is the perfect solution for anything from simple drives to ambitious interleaved applications. Semikron's SKYPER Prime offers integrated insulated DC link and temperature measurement and can help the customer reduce system costs significantly.
