Installation of the latest 7th-generation IGBT chips realises industrial equipment such as general-purpose inverters, lifts and uninterruptible power supply devices with lower power consumption and higher reliability. Available in two packages1 and two pin layouts2, a new line-up of 65 products contributes to providing the best devices for wide-ranging applications and diversified industrial equipment needs.
The size of the power semiconductor packages for driving the inverters of home appliances such as residential-use air-conditioners and refrigerators has been reduced by 30% compared to conventional products1, realising the world's smallest2 1.5 kW-class motor. The compact packages contribute to reducing the size and weight of the 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., 40 km) transmissions. With a size reduction to just 30 per cent3 that of its 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 5-mm-thick cover glass, multi-touch up to a maximum of 10 points, the use of thick heat-resistant gloves and a wet screen. It is optimised for outdoor applications through pursuit of shock resistance 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.
