Infineon’s new power module for mid-power EV traction inverters

Infineon Technologies has introduced the HybridPACK DC6i, a new IGBT power module tailored to the needs of EV traction inverters in the 80 kW to 100 kW power class. It combines Infineon’s EDT2 IGBTs with package technologies for compactness, thermal management at reduced material cost and easy installation.

Within Infineon’s portfolio, the HybridPACK DC6i is positioned between the HybridPACK1 family and the more powerful HybridPACK Drive family.

The new module has the same footprint (7.2 cm x 14 cm) as the HybridPACK1—25 percent smaller than the HybridPACK Drive—but the company says its available output power is more than 50 percent higher. The new module has six screw connectors to the DC-link capacitor, giving a stray inductance of 15 nH. Infineon says that its direct-cooling wave baseplate provides heat dissipation with a thermal resistance from the IGBT chip junction to the fluid of 0.17 K/W.

The DC6i was designed with press-fit pins and additional guiding elements to expedite gate driver board mounting.

The HybridPACK DC6i meets the AQG324 norm for automotive power modules.

The new HybridPACK DC6i is in production and will be available at distributors in September 2020. Further information is available at www.infineon.com/DC6i.
