SLLIMM Intelligent Power Modules

ST’s SLLIMM™ family of small low-loss intelligent molded modules enhances the efficiency of home appliance motor drives working up to 20 kHz in hard-switching circuitries and of applications with a power range up to 3 kW.
ST’s intelligent power modules (IPMs) provide a direct connection between a low-voltage microcontroller and a mains-powered electric motor. They greatly reduce costs by simplifying design and significantly reducing component count while saving space, improving reliability and lowering EMI. Available in several package options (fully molded and DBC), current ratings and driving options, they feature the best compromise between conduction and switching losses, along with outstanding robustness and EMI behavior.

Second generation SLLIMM modules

ST has extended its offering of IGBT intelligent power modules with the introduction of the second series of SLLIMM intelligent power modules. Thanks to the optimal trade-off between conduction and switching energy combined with outstanding robustness and EMI behavior, they increase the efficiency of motor drive applications ranging from 300 W to 3 kW (such as compressors, pumps and fans) working up to 20 kHz. With a maximum collector current ranging from 8 A to 35 A, they are available in a full molded or DBC-based package. As part of ST’s motor control ecosystem, ST also offers motor control power boards based on the new IPMs.
