May 2017 - SEMIKRON Launches New Thermal Interface Materials
Published on: 25/05/2017
Introducing a new solution to boost product performance
Alongside the standard silicone based and a silicon free thermal grease, a phase change material and the new high performance thermal paste with an improved thermal performance are now available.
SEMIKRON formulated a clear strategy that phase change materials will be applied on modules with baseplate only and thermal greases on modules without a baseplate. The new high performance thermal paste is the SEMIKRON solution to boost the performance for modules without baseplate.
A reduction of the thermal resistance by up to 50% is possible which goes along with a module output power increase by up to 25% or a lifetime enhancement by several decades. The new high performance paste will be available for all baseplate-less power modules.
