Installing the latest 7th generation IGBT chips allows industrial equipment such as general-purpose inverters, lifts and uninterruptible power supply devices to have lower power consumption and higher reliability. Available in two packages1 and two pin layouts2, a new line-up of 65 products provides devices for a wide range of applications and diverse industrial equipment needs.
The size of power semiconductor packages for driving inverters in home appliances such as residential air conditioners and refrigerators has been reduced by 30% compared with conventional products1, creating the worlds smallest2 1.5 KW class motor. These compact packages contribute to reducing the size and weight of inverters used in home appliances.
Mitsubishi Electric has developed GaN1 HEMTs2 for use in Base Transceiver Stations (BTS) operating in the 3.5 GHz-band of fourth generation mobile communication systems.The four new GaN-HEMTs offer output power and efficiency levels that are among the highest3 currently available. High efficiency allows use of a simple cooling system, which contributes to the smaller size and lower power consumption of BTSs.
A high performance EML1 helps to realise the industry’s longest distance2 (i.e. 40km) transmissions. With a size reduction to just 30%3 of it’s predecessor, the new model will allow optical transceivers to be made more compact. This is expected to help reduce the size of 100 Gbps communication facilities and expand high-speed 100 Gbps optical transmission networks.
The new TFT-LCD module with a projection-capacitive touch panel is able to operate with a 5mm-thick cover glass, multi-touch to a maximum of 10 points, use with thick heat-resistant gloves and a wet screen. It has been optimised for outdoor applications through the pursuit of shock and water resistance.
In addition to the industry's highest1 anti-vibration performance (i.e., 6.8 G acceleration) and a wide guaranteed temperature operating range (-40°C to +85°C), ultrabright visual display (1,500 cd/m2) is realised. This contributes to improving the visual quality of large-screen, high-brightness displays used in harsh environments outside, such as panels for construction machinery, agricultural machinery and machining tools.
