Catalogue data

AbstractPower semiconductor devices are the core of today's energy efficient electronics. However, without adequate integration into power electronic systems, they remain useless. This is achieved by providing application-tailored modules. The development of power modules is reviewed from basic design and material considerations, with special emphasis on simulation and characterization techniques.
ObjectiveThe goal of this course is developing an understanding of modern power module concepts, from materials to design and simulation. After following the course, the student will know the basic functionality of a power module, and is able to describe the performance and reliability related building blocks of the module design. Furthermore, the student will have an understanding of current and future developments in power packaging.
Lecture notesWill be distributed at lectures and be made available at ILIAS.
LiteratureThe course follows a collection of different books; more details are being listed in the script.
Prerequisites / NoticeIdeally, students have successfully attended "Power Semiconductor" (227-0156-00).
