Mitsubishi Electric Corp. has launched its New Mega Power Dual (New MPD) series of insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) modules. Suitable for all applications requiring high power density, the New MPD modules are used mainly for power converters for large capacity wind power and photovoltaic systems. Shipments will begin in January 2010 through Mitsubishi Electric sales sites in Americas, Europe, China and Korea, according to the company.
According to Mitsubishi Electric, the current rating exceeds that of the original MPD series by 1.5 times and features a dedicated package with a rearranged internal structure and sixth generation IGBT chips.
In addition, an optimum chip layout with adequate surrounding margin improves cooling efficiency in liquid-cooled applications, the company says.
