Powerex (Youngwood, PA) recently added several new NX-Series IGBT modules to its PowerSim app. Parts ending in S1 denote the 6.1 Generation NX-Series IGBT product line, incorporating the 6.1 Carrier Stored Trench Bipolar Transistor (CSTBT) silicon, facilitating a very efficient, economical, robust inverter design. New design effort is minimized, as the 6.1 Generation NX-Series employs the same standard packaging and features previously introduced for the 5th and 6th Generation PowerSim can be used to calculate power loss and thermal conditions, both average and peak, of Powerex power semiconductors in 2-level, 3-phase inverters, based on operating conditions provided by the user. The new module parts are:

  • CM200DX-34SA.
  • CM600DXL-34SA.
  • CM225DX-24S1.
  • CM300DX-24S1.
  • CM450DX-24S1.
  • CM600DX-24S1.
