HONG KONG – Fairchild’s SPM Smart Power Module technology is being recognized by 21IC in their 13th annual Top-10 Power Product Award. The award went to the FNB51560TD1, one of the modules in the Fairchild Motion SPM® 55 Series which are optimized to provide a fully-featured, high-performance inverter output stage for AC Induction, PMSM and BLDC motors.
Winning products had to comply with the following criteria:
• A significant advancement in a technology or its application
• Innovative design
• A substantial achievement in price-performance
• Motion SPM 55 Series modules integrate Fairchild’s industry-leading IGBTs with their gate drive technology for minimizing EMI and losses, while also providing multiple on-module protection features, including under-voltage lockouts, an inter-lock function, over-current shutdown, thermal monitoring of the drive IC, and fault reporting.
The high-speed HVIC requires only a single supply voltage and translates the incoming logic-level gate inputs to the high-voltage, high-current drive signals required to properly drive the module’s robust short-circuit-rated IGBTs. Separate negative IGBT terminals are available for each phase to support the widest variety of control algorithms.
“We are pleased and honored to again be a Top-10 Power Award winner,” said Andy Lai, VP Greater China Sales & Applications, Fairchild Semiconductor. “We see this award as an endorsement by the industry of the FNB51560TD1 module’s high efficiency, versatility and robustness, and of Fairchild's role in advancing state-of-the-art power modules and motor electronics.”
