MiniSKiiP Production Film
SEMIKRON & Formula E
Dear Sir or Madam,
PCIM Europe, with around 10.000 visitors from home and abroad, again emphasised this year its international significance as the meeting point for the industry.
For SEMIKRON too we draw an extremely positive conclusion after the three days. No wonder, since we could present some exciting news that attracted a lot of attention in hall 9.
 
We demonstrated that SEMIKRON continues to drive innovation in terms of packaging technology. The new SEMITRANS 10 module, which features our new Direct Pressed Die (DPD) technology, was literally overrun with visitors for the entire three days of the exhibition. The accompanying presentation “Beyond the Limits of Standard Packages with SEMIKRON Innovations”, was jam-packed.
 
New module families such as our SEMITRANS 20 or our SEMITOP E1/E2 met with just as much fanfare as the unveiling of our new IGBT partners Renesas and Vishay did.
 
But see for yourself in our video fair reports.
 
Best regards,

Peter Sontheimer
Chief Sales Executive
SEMIKRON International GmbH

New Technology: Direct Pressed Die (DPD)
 
Direct Pressed Die (DPD)
 
Within the new SEMITRANS 10, we have introduced the Direct Pressed Die (DPD) technology. This technology combines the Double Side Sintering (DSS) advances to produce the lowest thermal resistance available in any standard package, increasing the new SEMITRANS 10 power output by more than 30% compared to the standard version, while incredibly, using the same IGBT & Diode technology.

More than 11,000 MiniSKiiP per day
 
MiniSKiiP Production Film
 
Every day, SEMIKRON makes 11,000 MiniSKiiP power modules, for customers all over the world. And for more than 15 years, MiniSKiiP has been a leading contributor to reliable, high performance industrial power electronics. Now the MiniSKiiP itself, with its unique spring contacts, is available in more than 200 configurations, and six housing sizes. With these product options alone, a highly sophisticated production line is required.
 
Take a look at how the MiniSKiiP is made, with advanced automated assembly, and stringent quality control processes, that ensure every module is 100% to our standards.
 
Formula E - Also there: SEMIKRON!
 
 
Formula E is the world's first all-electric racing series. Its first season started on the 13th of September, 2014. The entire concept is based on the values of environmental friendliness and sustainability. Formula E is intended to provide a competitive environment for the automotive industry in order to promote the development of electrically powered vehicles. The venues for the races are specially conceived road circuits directly in city centres.
 
From season 2016/2017 our SiC partner ROHM will be sponsoring the Venturi racing team, who will be using the ROHM SiC Schottky barrier diodes in their inverters. SEMIKRON is supporting that sponsorship, therefore Venturi race cars had the SEMIKRON logo on their back wing during the race in Berlin on 21st May 2016.
 
The aim is to increase the efficiency of the entire powertrain by using SiC components, thus gibing Venturi a decisive advantage in racing. At the race in Berlin, both Venturi drivers managed to win points despite difficult conditions on the circuit and problems during qualifying.
