EconoDUAL™ 3 product family for medium power applications
With the EconoDUAL™ 3 products, Infineon supports the complete current ranges from 100 A up to 900 A at 600 V / 650 V / 1200 V and 1700 V. Excellent mechanical robustness, high power cycling capability, the option of PressFIT pins, and the availability of TIM makes it a reliable, cost effective solution. It is widely used in many different applications, such as general purpose drives, electric and hybrid vehicles, wind, solar, traction, CAV, UPS as well as transmission & distribution.
EconoDUAL™ 3 modules are equipped with the state-of-the-art TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT7 or IGBT4 technologies for highest power density and leading-edge power cycling capability. The symmetrical design of the modules enables optimized current sharing between the IGBT half bridges in parallel operation.
EconoDUAL™ 3 modules are available in various topologies, and with integrated additional functionality, such as shunt resistors, for efficient inverter designs.
In general, chip shrinkage leads to an increased thermal impedance, which then impacts the application performance. Based on the 1200 V, 600 A EconoDUAL™ 3 module, this publication discusses how chip shrinkage can be compensated by module layout and chip performance.
Read about both the theoretical background and the thermal simulations of the module layout.
In this paper all technical aspects of the EconoDUAL™ 3 with TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT7 will be discussed including switching characteristics and improved housing.

EconoDUAL™ 3 Wave
CO2 reduction targets make the electrification of large vehicles inevitable, but the repetitive start-stop cycles and the long operation hours put a high demand on power module lifetime.
The Wave power modules come in the standard EconoDUAL™ 3 housing, but feature additional ribbon bonds on the backside for an advanced cooling concept with direct liquid cooling. The ribbon bond solution reduces overall temperatures and ripple in etrucks, ebusses, drives or wind applications.

Reduced system costs by higher integration
EconoDUAL™ 3 modules are also available with integrated shunt resistors for current monitoring in the AC path. The integration of additional functionality into the IGBT module is a very effective way to optimize the overall system costs of an inverter.
External current sensors are no longer needed. This saves space in the system, reduces material costs and lowers manufacturing efforts.
