“We look forward to working with DuPont and its Pyralux® technology to help eMPack® become a global leader in EV power modules,” said Karl-Heinz Gaubatz, CTO of Semikron
WILMINGTON Del. (PRWEB)
DuPont (NYSE:DD) Interconnect Solutions, part of its Electronics & Industrial business, today announced a multi-year agreement with European power module manufacturer Semikron-Danfoss that will incorporate DuPont™ Pyralux® AP full-polyimide double-sided copper clad laminate into its eMPack® Power modules to further enhance the capabilities of next-generation electric vehicles.
The integration of copper-clad Pyralux® AP-laminate in eMPack® traction inverter designs will help EV automotive engineers to meet important requirements related to signal integrity and power transfer. The properties of Pyralux® AP that benefit this Semikron-Danfoss application include:
- Robust thermal resistance for temperature stability
- All-polyimide dielectric layer
- Extreme durability
- Superior bond strength for automotive-grade reliability
- Excellent low power dissipation characteristics
- Superior electrical performance
- Consistent signal integrity
In addition, Pyralux® AP’s dielectric thickness tolerance and low coefficient of thermal expansion make it ideal for rigid flexible or multilayer flexible applications. The adhesive-free flexible circuit material has a UL 94-V0 flammability rating, a maximum operating temperature of 200°C and is IPC 4204A/11 certified.
“Pyralux® AP has emerged as our most suitable solution after extensive testing and because the product has demonstrated stable, reliable performance in a variety of industries under severe operating conditions like ours for three decades,” said Karl-Heinz Gaubatz, CTO of Semicron. “eMPack® is a perfect match for SiC MOSFET power modules. We look forward to working with DuPont and their Pyralux® technology to help eMPack® become a global leader in EV power modules.”
Earlier this year, Semikron-Danfoss, headquartered in Nuremberg, Germany, was awarded a billion-euro contract from 2025 to supply patented eMPack® power modules to a major German automaker. Within silicon carbide MOSFET or all silicon carbide technology based modules, traction converters can be created that are extremely compact, scalable and reliable due to Semikron’s double-sided sintered assembly and connection technology called Direct Pressed Die (DPD).
“We are excited how this Pyralux® AP copper-clad EV power module application supports a sustainable and electrified future to help preserve our planet for generations to come,” said Andy Kannurpatti, Global Business Director, Films & Laminates, DuPont InterconnectSolutions. “The eMPack® power module is expected to enable millions of next-generation electric vehicles by 2032. We look forward to being a key contributor to the long-awaited success of eMPack® and appreciate working with Semikron-Danfoss.”
