Improving module performance and reliability in power electronic applications by monolithic integration of RC-snubbers

By Tobias Erlbacher, Holger Schwarzmann, Anton J. Bauer, Sven E. Berberich, Joachim vom Dorp and Lothar Frey


Monolithic integration of RC snubbers in power electronic applications offers great opportunities. The presented devices provide tight tolerances and enable high integration densities. Especially, the incorporation into power modules enables reduction of electromagnetic interferences in accordance with reliable lifetime predictions

Topics: capacitance, capacitor, electromagnetic interference, reliability, resistance, silicon, snubber, RC-snubber, dielectric reliability, monolithic integration, power module, high integration density, lifetime prediction, module performance, power electronic applications, tight tolerances
