『What is power module “package”?: Bridging Devices and Applications』

Efforts toward a decarbonized society are accelerating around the world.
Particularly In Europe, to achieve the goals of the Green Deal, it is essential to further increase the efficiency of power conversion based on the principle of Energy Efficient First, and expectations are being placed on power electronics technology.
Power devices, which form the core of power electronics technology, have made remarkable progress in response to these current trends.
In order to achieve even higher efficiency, there is growing interest in power modules that bring out the performance of power devices and improve usability.
In this article, we will focus on the latest trends in packaging technology, which is attracting attention as a differentiating factor in module development.
