Thermal Resistance of Power Modules

Understanding how heat flows out of a power module is crucial for power design. This webinar explains how thermal resistance is derived by a power module manufacturer, some techniques used for measurement, and how the values given in a datasheet can vary between module types and manufacturers. ​​​​​​​

Additionally, the concept of thermal coupling and how operating modes influence thermal resistance will be discussed.

This webinar is a natural extension to the previous webinar “How to Read an IGBT Datasheet.”

Key Take-Aways

  • Learn how thermal resistance is defined for SEMIKRON modules.
  • Discover how thermal resistance can vary with operating mode.
  • Understand the parameters on a power module datasheet.
