Intelligent Power Modules (IPM) as fully integrated solution which combine both driving circuitry and power bridges on a single die or at least with implemented IC- based driver replacing conventional hybrid IGBT or MOS drivers are restricted to low power applications (600V/ 1200V, < 30A). With the extension of the current range of the IPMs from 30A up to 100A the medium power market can be served too. A novel approach for medium power IPMs is presented in this paper combining well established CIB-modules based on Semikron’s Mini-SKiiP technology with advanced silicon on insulator (SOI) gate driver HVICs in a reliably cost effective and low inductive package and with excellent cooling.
