New LinPak IGBT open standard medium power phase-leg module

The new LinPak IGBT phase-leg module available from PPM Power has exceptionally low stray inductance.  The design enables a very low-inductive busbar and a high current carrying capability. The excellent internal and external current sharing make it ideally suited for paralleling.

A range of current ratings are available. Derating-free paralleling is possible up to at least four modules. The module features an integrated temperature sensor and a dedicated mounting area for a gate-drive adapter board. The adapter board can also be fixed with four screws in the module corners.
