Complete Full-Bridge System-in-Package from STMicroelectronics Includes MOSFETs, Gate Drivers, and Protection to Save Space, Simplify Design, and Streamline Assembly

Geneva, December 4, 2017 -- STMicroelectronics’ PWD13F60 System-in-Package (SiP) contains a complete 600V/8A single-phase MOSFET full bridge in a 13mm x 11mm outline, saving bill-of-materials costs and board space in industrial motor drives, lamp ballasts, power supplies, converters, and inverters. With a footprint 60% smaller than a comparable circuit built from discrete components, the PWD13F60 can also boost end-application power density. By integrating four power MOSFETs, it presents a uniquely efficient alternative to other modules on the market that are typically dual-FET half-bridge or six-FET three-phase devices. Unlike either of these choices, only one PWD13F60 is needed to implement a single-phase full bridge, leaving no internal MOSFETs unused. There is also flexibility to configure the module as one full bridge or two half bridges.
