Power Semiconductor Application Manual
Semiconductor knowledge base on 464 pages (PresseBox) (Nürnberg, ) Semikron presents the English version of its Application Manual - just in time for the fair SPS / IPC / Drives. The German version is already available. The 464-page-long manual provides electronics experts with detailed information on the selection and use of IGBT, MOSFET, diode and thyristor components.

The Application Manual contains detailed application-related information such as electrical configuration for key operating conditions, driver and protection elements for semiconductors, thermal dimensioning and cooling, tips on parallel and series connection, assembly tips for optimised power layouts with regard to parasitic elements, as well as notes to help users better understand datasheets and the requirements that arise from specific ambient conditions. Assembly and connection technologies which have a major impact on the properties of semiconductor modules and the limits in field applications are also described, as are reliability data, life cycle analyses and key test processes.

The German and English Application Manual is available for €9.90 under the ISBN No. 978-3-938843-56-7 (German) and under ISBN-Nr. 978-3-938843-66-6 (English) and via the Sindopower power electronics eCommerce portal at www.sindopower.com. Based on the Power Electronics Application Manual, excerpts are published on the knowledge platform www.powerelectronics-base.com and www.leistungselektronik-wissen.de, in both German and English. 20 articles are already available and a valuable power electronics reference for amateurs and professionals alike.

"The affordable price makes this work accessible to a multitude of users", comments Dr. Arendt Wintrich, one of the four authors of the manual and specialist for applications and simulations at Semikron. The three co-authors are Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Nicolai, Dr. techn. Werner Tursky from Semikron, and university professor Dr.-Ing. Tobias Reimann, head of Industrial Electronics at the Technical University of Ilmenau.
