Power Electronics for DC Fast Chargers
As electric vehicles become widespread, so must the infrastructure to charge them. One of the main requirements for the widespread use of electric vehicles is an accessible EV charging infrastructure. Governments and industries worldwide are investing in charging infrastructures, with a growing trend toward bidirectional charging.
Availability and costs are the key to success in the fast growing EV Charger market. As the specialist in power electronics, we use state-of-the-art topologies featuring standard components, guaranteeing both excellent efficiency and availability. SEMIKRON Danfoss offers a comprehensive portfolio of products that meet the needs of fast charge equipment from as little as 8kW up to the megawatt range.
Industrial Standard Combined with Superior Performance
DC Fast Chargers require a power dense PFC, DC/DC, and output rectifier, all available in the SEMITOP E1/E2 packages. With a low inductance design, fast switching Si and SiC chips may be used to their full potential. Achieve supply chain safety with this industrial standard module in a wide array of topologies.
The thermal resistance is up 20% lower than the closest competitor using standard thermal paste. Using High Performance Thermal Paste (HPTP), a further 25% reduction is possible.More about SEMITOP E1/E2
The Ultimate Partner for Silicon Carbide Power Modules
For power dense EV chargers, silicon carbide enables freedom of design for today's power electronics. Silicon carbide exhibits extremely low switching losses which yield less cooling effort and higher efficiency. The result is smaller, lighter power converters and reduced energy usage.
The industry standard SEMITOP E1 and E2 feature high thermal performance and low stray inductance. Standart pinout configurations allow for multiple sourcing to ensure supply chain safety.

Four Key Factors for Your success:More about Customized Stacks
The unique product portfolio enables access to all established industries with a one-stop solution that combines state-of-the-art power modules and driver electronics.
Our IGBT drivers are available as two- channel driver cores suitable for any standard semiconductor power module or as Plug-and-Play solutions, which perfectly fit the SEMiX 3 Press-Fit, SEMITRANS 10 and compatible modules.
Achieve outstanding system compactness and create space-and cost-effective inverter designs with our drivers, utilizing highly integrated ASIC technology. Isolated DC-link voltage and temperature sensor signals at the driver’s interface along with over-voltage and over-temperature lockout also help to reduce system costs significantly.
More than 25 years of experience in developing innovative IGBT driver electronics enables Semikron Danfoss to have a short-term solution for almost every challenge related to driver electronics. Our Plug-and-Play drivers connect directly to most common standard IGBT modules. The IGBT driver cores fit with the adapter boards or application sample PCBs. For the latter, Semikron Danfoss shares the entire manufacturing data to decrease development time, speeding up the time-to-market.
Our SKYPER and SKHI are well-known, highly robust and reliable IGBT driver solutions under demanding environmental conditions. Over many years of field operation experience the proprietary IGBT driver technology has been relentlessly developed further. This technology sets new standards for the essential features of safe gate control, reliable protection and reinforced insulation.
Our SKIC ASIC technology enables very compact system design with minimal peripheral components.
With highly integrated signal processing and multi-channel failure management, our ASICs offer robust gate control.

Thermal Interface Materials
Stay Cool - Heat Dissipation is Our Job
Semikron Danfoss was the first power module manufacturer on the market to offer power modules with pre-applied thermal interface material (TIM). We now have over two decades of experience and more than 25 million pre-printed modules in the field.
We design print patterns for each module type for the best TIM distribution and thickness when the module is mounted to a heatsink. These patterns are printed on the modules in a clean environment on an automated silkscreen and stencil printing line. Statistical process control (SPC) is used to guarantee consistency. Special packaging is implemented to ensure that the TIM arrives at your production line in pristine condition.
In order to achieve the best thermal performance in all applications, Semikron Danfoss power modules can be supplied with our High Performance Thermal Paste (HPTP).
Alternatively, for ease-of-handing during assembly, most power modules are also available with pre-applied phase change material (PCM). Phase change materials have a solid consistency at room temperature. With the application of heat during first operation, the PCM flows to fill gaps and provide a thermal interface. With HP-PCM, the new Semikron Danfoss-exclusive High Performance Phase Change Material, we combine the benefits of a phase change material with the performance of the best available paste.
