We are moving into a new era of highly efficient power conversion at increasingly higher frequency switching, from automotive electrification, industrial automation to power supplies requiring new power semiconductor technology beyond Si and new packaging technology to match this. Hence, power GaN FET technology instead of Si, and Cu clip bonded packaging technology instead of traditional wire bonded D2 and TO packages.
Nexperia have developed a new future proof option, CCPAK, a copper clip cascode GaN HEMT package that brings all the benefits of a copper clip to applications using 650 V and above. Targeted for high reliability high performance applications. Very fast switching power GaN FET technology is complemented with high performance low inductance all clip bonded surface mount package.
Package innovation needs to match with technology advances, which is why Nexperia have developed a new future proof option, CCPAK, a copper clip cascode GaN HEMT package that brings all the benefits of copper clip, such as thermal performance, board level reliability, and advanced optical inspection (AOI) to power GaN FETs. As well as the above features, CCPAK has a 12 x 12 outline, which is 10% smaller than D2PAK,meaning future die sizes can be housed within the same outline.
For the application of high power high performance in power supply, solar inverter, OBC, DC-DC and traction inverter. This will allow the highest power density.
