Rogers Corporation’s Power Electronics Solutions Group to Introduce ROLINX® CAPLINK Solutions at PCIM 2018

Release Date: 06/05/2018


Eschenbach, Germany, June 6, 2018 – Rogers Corporation’s (NYSE:ROG) Power Electronics Solutions (PES) group will be exhibiting at PCIM Europe and introducing ROLINX® CapLink Solutions.

PCIM Europe (Power Conversion and Intelligent Motion) is the international leading exhibition for Power Electronics, Intelligent Motion, Renewable Energy and Energy Management, taking place at the Nuremberg Messe in Nuremberg, Germany from June 05 – 07, 2018. Rogers PES will be exhibiting in Hall 9 at Booth 406.

Rogers PES will also be active on the PCIM Europe technical conference schedule, with co-authors Sebastian Polster and Olivier Mathieu participating as part of the poster session with University of Applied Sciences Landshut, Germany on, “Low Inductive SiC Power Module Design Using Ceramic Multilayer Substrates”. This paper will report on a novel 600 V / 200 A full silicon carbide (SiC) water-cooled half-bridge inverter module with ultra-low stray inductance, improved EMI performance and extreme compact design. (Tuesday, June 5th, 3:15-5:30 PM, Foyer Entrance Mitte).

Visitors to Rogers´ booth will also have the chance to discover the wide range of ROLINX customized busbar solutions and assemblies renowned for their reliability, safety, and durability in the most demanding applications including mass transit and electric propulsion, industrial drives, renewable energy, and automotive systems. ROLINX busbar solutions offer low inductance, compact and highly customizable designs and in combination with capacitors, extremely low inductance and high power density capabilities.

ROLINX CapLink Solutions are custom assemblies consisting of a number of capacitors integrated to a laminated busbar and are ideal for any power-management application requiring high-power handling capabilities, low equivalent series inductance (ESL), low equivalent series resistance (ESR) in small, light-weight assemblies such as DC link systems in EV/HEV as well as in industrial, solar-power and wind-power systems. ROLINX CapLink Solutions are an essential solution to support IGBT/SiC technology devices at very high switching frequencies with increased voltages and higher temperatures.

ROLINX PowerCircuit Solutions are the ideal alternative when the current and power requirements of the application exceed the capabilities of a standard PCB solution. Their compact 3D design and superior thermal management result in space and weight savings. ROLINX PowerCircuit Solutions are highly integrated structures that are solder-process compatible. These products help engineers design power circuitry with the smallest possible footprint.

ROLINX Hybrid busbars are especially designed to reduce installation time of a battery module by combining power and signal lines for voltage and temperature measurement, in a one piece solution. Integrated surface mount components, such as connectors, enhance the functionality of the assembly.

ROLINX Housing Solutions are designed to simplify the design and assembly of electronic equipment housings. These injection-molded structures combine connectors with busbars for reduced weight and low-inductance power connections in electronic equipment housings. Ideal for high-volume applications in automotive and aerospace products, they are rated up to 100 kW at continuous operating temperatures from -40 to +125ºC.

ROLINX busbar solutions are ideal for a wide range of power distribution applications in electric vehicles/hybrid-electric vehicles (EV/HEVs), wind/solar power and variable frequency drives (VFD).
