A partnership between BETA Transformer Technology Corporation (BETA) and CISSOID has developed compact and reliable Intelligent Power Modules (IPM). These modules are optimised for power converters and motor control within extreme environments, including aerospace, industrial, ground vehicles, automotive, and oil and gas.
To meet the demanding environmental requirements, BETA developed high density transformer assemblies that combine multiple transformers into a single compact, rugged solution, with an extended temperature range of -55 to 225°C. These compact transformer assemblies are suitable for board designs with limited space that are subjected to extreme thermal conditions. Furthermore, the transformers are optimised to provide the enhanced isolation, and low parasitic capacitances associated with the fast switching SiC MOSFET transistors utilised.
"With DDC and BETA, we found the right partners to develop high reliability and high temperature transformer solutions for our SiC IPM and gate drivers. They bring to CISSOID their long experience in developing signal and power transformers for data transceivers and power converters as well as their high quality manufacturing facilities”, stated Dave Hutton, CISSOID CEO.
"Our partnership with CISSOID reinforces BETA’s long-standing commitment to solving the most challenging magnetics application requirements, and resulted in us producing the highest density and thermal capacity magnetic solution available. We believe that this first partnership with CISSOID will trigger others as we see various collaboration opportunities between DDC and CISSOID, e.g. the development of high temperature motor drive or power converter solutions for aerospace, defense, and industrial applications”, stated Frank Bloomfield, DDC VP Power Systems.
