The Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor IGBT is power semiconductor switching component with improved characteristics like high efficiency and fast switching, making suitable for use in modern industrial applications like electric cars, high efficiency inverters, highly automated motor variable frequency drive and most of the new generation of power controlled energy. The IGBT combines the simple gate-drive characteristics of the MOSFETs with the high-current and low–saturation-voltage capability of bipolar transistors allowing it to switch ON & OFF huge amount of energy with relative small gate signal.
AmePower also supplies the IGBT Gate Drivers, allows known as IGBT Gate Units. These devices are specially designed for each application supplying features like:
The Gate Turn-Off (GTO) Thyristor is a fully controllable discrete semiconductor switch that can be turned on and off with a positive and negative gate signal, these components are optimized for very low conduction losses designed to work in the most demanding industrial applications. These components are highly used on High Power & High Voltage Converters for low and medium frequency applications. AmeTrade™ Electronics also supplies the GTO Gate Drivers, allows known as GTO Gate Units.
AmePower™ also supplies the GTO Gate Drivers, allows known as GTO Gate Units. These devices are specially designed for each application supplying features like:
The Silicon Controlled Rectifier Thyristor is the most used semiconductor switch in the market. With several years working on the most demanding applications, this product has been proven as a very robust & reliable component. In Addition to the Normal Phase Control Thyristor, there are several special types of SCR Thyristors depending on the application where used, with special characteristics like Fast Turn off times, Specific Switching Energy, Bi-directional Control, Distributed Gate Construction, High Blocking Voltage, light trigger Gates and more.
The Diodes are the most elemental electronic components and basically main feature is that they permit the flow of current in only one direction and blocking reverse current. There are several types of diodes depending on the application to be used, generally differentiated by speed, forward current capacity, recovery capabilities, blocking voltage and others manufacturing specifications.
Thyristor/Diodes Power Modules are widely used on several types of rectifiers specially designed to be used on compact and easy maintenance equipments like industrial rectifiers, inverters and variable frequency drives. These modules are manufactured in several different types of arrangements like Full & Half Phase leg, H-Bridge, Dual & Single Diode, Chopper, Full Controlled single & three phase rectifier and others.
The metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistor (Mosfet) is a special type of transistor designed for use in low voltage, high current switching applications, generally packaged in modules containing 6 transistors and relative fast switching protection diodes.
The Power Semiconductor Assemblies and its main components like Heat Sinks and Clamps are developed to fit each individual application; normally these parts are specially designed to maximize semiconductor performance and to mechanically allocate all power components needed in a specific system. Heat Sink exists with different types of cooling method Air, Liquid or phase change. Clamps are used for press-pack disc (Hockey-Puk) components like Thyristors and diodes.
The Intelligent Power Module (IPM) is an advanced hybrid power device, integrating IGBTs with optimized gate drive and protection circuitry, this products are becoming the industry standard for consumer applications, when fast production, compact design & expedited development are important.
The DC Power Converters are used in several industrial applications when different DC voltages are required. Normally gate drive board for high power semiconductors need special power supplies in order to drive the necessary current & voltage requirement to fire components like High Current Capacity GTO & SCR Thyristors.
The Voltage & Current Sensors are designed to accurately measure DC, AC and Impulse Current and Voltages, directly from high power sections of semiconductors based equipments. This allows the control circuitry to manage and acquire the signals on a low power & isolated section of the equipment. Most used sensor in the Power Semiconductor area are based on the Hall Effect technology that permits to sense instantaneous values, proving very fast response times and a more accurate control of the power.
The Capacitors used for power semiconductors are designed with special high performance characteristics intended to be used on applications where high currents and/or high voltages are common.
The Fuses used for power semiconductors applications are specially designed to promptly protect electronics components, some of the characteristics required for this products are higher AC and DC voltage, lower l2t, Controlled Arc Voltage & Superior reliability.
