Industrial Power Module Packaging Comparison 2020
By Yole SystemPlus —
Compare the packaging technology and cost of ten industrial power modules from Infineon, Mitsubishi, IXYS/Littelfuse, Vincotech, ABB, and Wolfspeed.
The market for power modules will be worth $6B by 2024 with a 2018-2024 compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.6%. The power module market plays a key role in several industrial applications, such as motor drives and traction. In 2018, the biggest power module market segment is motor drives at $1.4B.
Module packaging currently faces several challenges, from housings to die attach and connections. To remain competitive, power module makers must deliver high reliability while remaining cost efficient.
In this dynamic context of the power module packaging market, System Plus Consulting provides a deep comparative review of packaging technology and cost, of 10 Industrial Power Modules from the main suppliers on the market: Infineon, Mitsubishi, IXYS, Vincotech, ABB, and Wolfspeed.
System Plus Consulting analyzes several packaging technologies to provide an insight into their structures, processes and costs. We look at their external parts, including cases, covers and baseplates, and their internal structure, including substrates, assembly of the substrates and modules, die and substrate attach and connections.
The cost of each power module packaging is detailed including external part costs, assembly cost per process step, and yield losses cost.
The ten Industrial Power Module packaging have been compared in terms of packaging structure, assembly, and electrical performance. Finally, they have been compared in terms of packaging cost, including package cost breakdown, cost per commutation cell, cost per power in $/kVA, cost per module package surface and per package volume.
