Dynex Semiconductor, Lincoln, U.K., and Ecostar Electric Drive Systems, Dearborn, Mich., joined to fabricate prototype power semiconductor modules for potential use in electric vehicles and power conversion systems. Ecostar will design the power module, while Dynex provides power module process and manufacturing expertise and IGBT knowledge to optimize the design and fabricate prototypes. The project focuses on prototype power modules, incorporating the latest IGBT technology to provide efficient power conversion and inverter motor drives.
“This represents another milestone in our power product development,” said Dr. Paul Taylor, chief technology office for Dynex. “Ecostar’s selection of Dynex for this project demonstrates the strength of our technology in the power electronics market.”
