November 24, 2023 /SemiMedia/ -- Infineon Technologies AG has announced the expansion of its 650 V CoolMOS™ CFD7A product portfolio with the introduction of QDPAK packaging to address the need for more cost-effective and high-performance power electronics in electric vehicle charging systems. The QDPAK package family is designed to provide equivalent thermal capabilities with improved electrical performance over the well-known TO247 THD devices, thus enabling efficient energy utilization in onboard chargers and DC-DC converters.
Efficient and powerful electric vehicle charging systems help reduce charging times and vehicle weight, increasing design flexibility and reduce the total cost of ownership of the vehicle. This new addition complements the existing CoolMOS CFD7A series, offering versatility with top-side and bottom-side cooled packages. The QDPAK TSC (top side cooled), enables designers to achieve higher power densities and optimal PCB space utilization.
The 650 V CoolMOS CFD7A offers several important features for reliable operation in high-voltage applications. Thanks to its reduced parasitic source inductance, the device can minimize electromagnetic interference (EMI), ensuring clear signals and consistent performance. The Kelvin source pin also provides improved precision for current sensing, ensuring accurate measurements even in challenging conditions. With a creepage distance suitable for high voltage applications, as well as high current capability and high power dissipation (P tot) of up to 694 W at 25°C, it is a versatile and powerful device for a wide range of high-voltage applications.
New system designs using 650 V CoolMOS CFD7A in QDPAK TSC will maximize PCB space use, doubling power density and enhancing thermal management via substrate thermal decoupling. This approach simplifies assembly, eliminates board stacking and reduces the need for connectors, thereby lowering system costs. The power switch reduces thermal resistance by up to 35 percent, providing high power dissipation that outperforms standard cooling solutions.
This feature overcomes the thermal limitations of bottom side cooled SMD designs using FR4 PCBs, resulting in a significant boost in system performance. The optimized power loop design locates drivers near the power switch, improving reliability by reducing stray inductance and chip temperatures. Overall, these features contribute to a cost-effective, robust, and efficient system ideal for modern power needs.
The 650 V CoolMOS CFD7A is available in QDPAK package with two versions, top-side cooled (TSC) and bottom-side cooled (BSC). Both variants can be ordered now. For more information, please visit www.infineon.com/cfd7a.
