Semikron International and LS Industrial Systems Korea (LSIS) have signed a memorandum of understanding combining their expertise to offer LSIS integrated power modules based on Semikron’s MiniSKiiP IGBT-platform. The collaboration targets industrial drives, as well as power solutions for consumer electronics. The modules are set to address the rapidly growing demand for more integrated high-power platforms in a wide range of applications, including LCDs and plasma display panels.
LSIS will be adapting the Semikron integrated power modules with pressure-contact technology to be promoted to the industrial and appliance market. The MiniSKiiP power module platform will allow for faster development and lower production costs. Conversely, Semikron will be adapting the control technologies of LSIS to develop application-specific systems.
