Demand for smaller, higher efficiency power conversion products is driving adoption of transistor devices. The recent focus for these devices is on efficiency with an emphasis on higher voltages in smaller sizes. As size gets smaller, challenges of managing heat, space and reliability increase. That’s where Advanced Electronics Solutions from Rogers can make a big difference.
Today’s power transistors provide a wide variety of power management applications but, due to the nature of their purpose, all pose their own challenges. Thermal management, power distribution efficiency and reliability are critical. Power transistors come in many varieties, including:
Ceramic substrates and busbars play a major role in power transistors by boosting performance, minimizing power losses and optimizing thermal management. Rogers’ ROLINX® busbars distribute power by acting as a custom liaison between the power source and the power transistor module, whether it be IGBTs, BJTs, MOSFETS or complete modules. Additionally, Rogers’ curamik® ceramic substrates cool components and provided interconnections at the semiconductor level.
