This paper presents a new 600V SPM(r) 55 package with transfer molded type, which combines with the features of the latest trench field-stop technology (FST) IGBT and optimized gate driver IC to achieve the excellent solution for motor drives applications in home appliances. Especially, this module is adopted and optimized to integrated bootstrap circuitry in drive IC which can be fully supported for a simple layout and less PCB space to develop a motor drive power stage. This paper describes an overall description of the new SPM device as well as the package structure, thermal performance and electrical characteristics of the IGBT with bootstrap circuitry.
