Learn more about Semikron’s extensive product range designed specifically for motor drive applications

Semikron's Power Electronics for Motor Drives

Semikron offers the complete industrial standard power module portfolio that serves a power range of 0.4kW to several megawatts.

Semikron’s Power Electronics for Motor Drives

Semikron’s product range features:

  • Rectifier, IGBT and Silicon Carbide power modules
  • Latest IGBT technology including Generation 7 IGBTs
  • Serving 200VAC 400VAC 690VAC applications
  • Plug and play IGBT drivers and stacks for shortest time-to-market
  • Covering air and water-cooled multi-megawatt applications with the SKiiP high power IPM
  • Excellent application support


Semikron is committed to supplying solutions for every power range, starting with the first insulated power module, rectifier modules from the SEMIPACK series more than 40 years ago. The MiniSKiiP in particular has revolutionised the motor drive design for low and medium-power systems. Paired with industry standard power modules such as SEMiX and SEMITRANS, the portfolio is rounded off with high-power SKiiP 4 IPMs and power electronic stacks. Semikron’s new generation 7 IGBTs boost performance and power density.
