VS-40MT160P-P, VS-70MT160P-P and VS-100MT160P-P Modules Reduce Production Costs, Increase Reliability
February 15, 2016 - New Yorker Electronics has announced the addition of a new Vishay Intertechnology series of 45 A to 100 A three-phase-bridge modules to its extensive line of Vishay products and components. These new modules, the VS‑40MT160P-P, VS-70MT160P-P and VS-100MT160P-P, dramatically reduce production costs when compared to devices that incorporate solder contact technology. In the low-profile MTP PressFit package, they also increase reliability for welding machines, UPS, switch mode power supplies and motor drives.
The solderless PressFit technology of the power modules allows for easy one-step PCB mounting, significantly reducing assembly time and simplifying in-field maintenance. Offering direct mounting to heatsinks, the devices’ low 17 mm profile maximizes space savings while optimizing electrical layouts for application-specific power supplies. Providing higher reliability and long-term durability compared with solder contact technology, the power modules’ PressFit package offers increased resistance to shock and vibration while eliminating issues such as cold spots, voids, splatter and cracks.
In addition, the devices are not subject to solder fatigue, a common failure mechanism in power modules operating at high temperatures. Optimized for AC/DC input rectification, the 45 A VS-40MT160P-P, 75 A VS-70MT160P-P, and 100 A VS-100MT160P-P offer 3500 VRMS insulation voltage, low forward voltage, and low junction-to-case thermal resistance. Designed and qualified for industrial-level applications, the RoHS-compliant devices are UL-approved, file E78996.
Samples and production quantities of the new power modules are available now at New Yorker Electronics, with lead times of eight to 10 weeks for large orders.
