The workshop is aimed at users and developers of power electronic systems as well as manufacturers of power semiconductor and simulation tools.
The project MessLeha analyses measurement methods and environments for the characterization of fast switching power semiconductors and develops a digital datasheet suitable for all simulation tools. Based on the project results, two proposals for IEC will be drafted.
We invite you to discuss these topics with us during this online workshop in two interactive breakout sessions. The feedback from the workshop will be taken up in the standardization activities.
- Breakout Session 1: Machine-readable Datasheet: Requirements, Hurdles, Solutions
Vendors of power semiconductor devices have to decide for which of the available simulation tools they provide a model. How convenient the setup of a simulation for a customer is depends on whether they use the “right” tool. In the worst case, the device will not be considered due to the lack of a suitable model. By providing a machine-readable datasheet, the process of device model parametrization can be automated by the toolchain manufacturers. During the session, the participants are able to name and discuss their requirements.
- Breakout Session 2: Double Pulse Test Setups: Capabilities, Targets, Gaps
Double pulse testing of power semiconductors is a well-established method for power device characterization at the device manufacturer but with the introduction of wide bandgap devices like SiC new challenges arise. On the other hand, many design engineers are not aware what additional benefits double pulse testing in their own setup could provide. In this session we will collect inputs from the participants to evaluate to what extent the MessLeha project already addresses the gaps and where further work is needed.
The project receives public funding from the German WIPANO program.
