Scalable solutions without compromise, Semikron’s MiniSkiiP IGBT Generation 7 is leading the way

IGBT Generation 7 by Semikron

Semikron’s MiniSKiiP – IGBT Generation 7

MiniSKiiP reaches new levels utilising the latest generation IGBT 7 chips and proven Semikron packaging technologies.

The MiniSKiiP is setting new standards in power density and performance for low and medium-power motor drives. It’s combined with the well-known advantages of the MiniSKiiP SPRiNG technology and its easy assembly process, a new benchmark in performance has been set.

Unlike conventional soldered modules, where expensive soldering equipment and time-consuming solder processes are required, no dedicated tools are needed for MiniSKiiP assembly thanks to the single or two-screw connection. The printed circuit board (PCB), power module and heatsink are all assembled in a single step.

The MiniSKiiP platform has proven successful in all standard applications such as motor drives, servo drives, solar inverters, UPS systems and welding machines. Semikron’s MiniSKiiP platform has two decades of experience and has 45 million modules in the field.


Product Range

MiniSKiiP modules are designed for 600V/650V, 1200V and 1700V with 4A-400A nominal chip currents. In addition to CIB, sixpack, twin sixpack, H-bridge, half-bridge and 3-level topology, customer specific modules are also available, using the latest chip technologies such as IGBT 7 in 1200V, application optimised 650V chipsets and silicon carbide. For fast evaluation, lab test boards can be ordered for every module type.
