DCM™Flexible Design through Customization
DCM™ Technology Platform
To power up the fast-growing fleet of HEVs, PHEVs and BEVs, Semikron Danfoss has developed a power module technology platform, for traction applications – the DCM.
The DCM technology platform is designed to be scalable. In the same package, we can scale the power up or down to meet different inverter voltage classes with blocking voltages of 750V-1200V, while having different output currents from 350 to 900A.
Furthermore, our power modules are based on quality components, patented packaging and cooling technologies to achieve outstanding, measurable results in terms of reliable performance and robustness – all adding up to ensure a cost-effective solution that lasts.
Our certified processes assure for consistent high quality and streamlined path from development to volume manufacturing.
DCM™ Key Features
- Advanced bonding and joining technology (Danfoss Bond Buffer®)
- Dedicated cooling technology (ShowerPower®)
- Transfer molding - robust packages for reliability and longer life
- Si and SiC Technology
- 750V/1200V HB and Sixpack compatible package delivering up to 900ARMS
- Low inductive package
Combining Winning Technologies for Higher Performance
The DCM technology platform is well-defined and based on known and proven technologies. Our patented solutions increase the power density, thermal robustness and improve lifetime and reliability of the power module.
Customize Your Power Solution
Our DCM platform allows you to design the power module to fit your application, rather than designing your application to fit a standard power module.
Our experts help you to custom tailor a solution that perfectly matches your system requirements on all essential parameters. The platform is based on a modular approach, which clears the path for scalable and cost-effective solutions that are easily integrated into the drivetrain design.
Choose Your Chip – we are Fully Compatible
The DCM is semiconductor independent and compatible with any type of chip from any manufacturer that you choose to partner with. We are not tied to a particular chip manufacturer, which means we can accommodate both your first choice and your back-up provider in case of supply shortage.
On a system level, chip independence means that the DCM platform is Si and SiC compatible and covers a full range of IGBT and MOSFET applications for higher inverter efficiency. This flexibility allows you to use a mix of semiconductors, enhancing module performance while ensuring maximum efficiency, cost-effectiveness and supply security.
