Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today it will launch a significantly more compact 600V three-phase bridge driver IC for driving power semiconductors in three-phase inverter systems. Sales will begin on April 1.
Consumer appliances and industrial machinery are increasingly using variable-frequency inverters in their motor control systems to save energy and improve performance, creating strong demand for HVICs that drive power semiconductors in inverter systems. To achieve more compact designs, Mitsubishi Electric is developing HVICs that feature smaller sizing, as well as higher performance.
|1)||Smallest size in the industry enables compact product design
|2)||Highly reliable inverter systems using built-in short-circuit detector
|3)||Simple inverter system design using a built-in fault signal output
