A Semiconductor Switching System is a semiconductor device used as a switch or rectifier in power electronics (for example in a switch-mode power supply).
Such a device is also called a power device or, when used in an integrated circuit, a power IC.A Semiconductor Switching System is usually used in “commutation mode” (i.e., it is either on or off), and therefore has a design optimized for such usage; it should usually not be used in linear operation.
Linear power circuits are widespread as voltage regulators, audio amplifiers, and radio frequency amplifiers.
Power semiconductors are found in systems delivering as little as a few tens of milliwatts for a headphone amplifier, up to around a gigawatt in a high voltage direct current transmission line.
Transistors and other semiconductor devices may also be used as switches. In such applications the base or gate of a transistor, depending on the type of transistor in use, is employed as a control element to switch on or off the current between the emitter and collector or the source and drain.
The Global Semiconductor Switching System market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced that its new SLIMDIP-Z power semiconductor module, featuring an extra-high 30A rated current for use in inverter systems of home appliances, will be released.
The compact module will enable the SLIMDIPTM series to meet a wider range of power and size needs for inverter units, specifically by simplifying and downsizing systems for multifunctional and sophisticated products such as air conditioners, washing machines and refrigerators.
The demand is growing for power semiconductors capable of efficiently converting electric power to help realize a low-carbon world.
Mitsubishi Electric commercialized its first DIPIPM as a high-performance intelligent power module with a transfer-mold structure incorporating a switching device and a control IC to drive and protect the switching element.
Since then, DIPIPMs have been widely adapted for use in large appliances and inverters for industrial motors, contributing to the downsizing and energy-efficiency of inverter boards.
