New CONCEPT Design Center to Deliver High-Performance Custom IGBT Driver Solutions
BIEL, Switzerland --(Business Wire)--
IGBT driver manufacturer CT-Concept
Technologie AG, a Power Integrations (News - Alert) company, has opened a design
center in Ense, Germany. The facility will develop semi-custom
gate-drive designs based on its driver cores and produce full-custom
drivers using CONCEPT's
SCALE-2® platform for large projects.
SCALE-2® chipsets provide high levels of integration,
resulting in low component count and consequent high reliability.
Features including direct paralleling and Dynamic Advanced Active
Clamping (DA2C) reduce system cost by requiring less
de-rating when IGBT modules are used in parallel.
The new facility has been staffed with a team of specialist designers to
address the needs of high power system developers with innovative
technical requirements or short development schedule. Commented Wolfgang
Ademmer, president of CONCEPT:
"New design challenges, including increased switching frequencies and
multi-level topologies combined with the use of new materials ncrease
the competitive pressure on our customers to create state-of-the-art
solutions in a short amount of time. We provide the right technology and
a tailored degree of support to match even the most difficult design
tasks. And of course, the new design center will enable us to develop an
even closer relationship with our customers, so that we can better
support their needs in our future products."
