Aiming to cut assembly costs and avert inverter assembly flaws, several companies now offer power modules that can be mounted in a single step.
Some use housings with a hole in the middle and a lid to hold the PCB, module and heat sink in place. This certainly facilitates installation and saves time. Vincotech, however, has taken this notion to a whole new level, building on the best of such practices and adding powerful features on top. The company developed a novel Press-fit technology and made it available in a wide range of products, including modules with pre-applied phase change material and thermal grease. These power modules also enable highly efficient low inductance designs.
Vincotech’s article looks closer at how Vincotech power modules, engineered for one-step assembly encompassing the PCB and heat sink, make life easier for manufacturers.
