Dow Corning to present at PCIM Europe 2012
Dr. Eric Vanlathem, physicist and senior application engineer, Dow
Corning Electronics Solutions, will be presenting the “New Generation of
Silicone Gels for Power Devices Encapsulation” during the PCIM
Europe Conference on May 10, 2012. .
Dr. Vanlathem will speak to the advances in Silicon technology for IGBT
chips and recent progress made in the field of wide bandgap semiconductors,
principally SiC. The advances are pushing temperature limits for
packaging materials to the extreme of what existing materials can afford. New
silicone gels have been developed and evaluated following a three step
- Optimization of existing toolbox of silicone chemistry brings silicone gels
capable of withstanding 200°C,
- a new approach is necessary in order to boost thermal performances, up to a
temperature of 225°C, and
- an out-of-the-box concept with new silicon-based polymers being designed
targeting temperatures at or above 250°C.
With more than 65 years of global leadership in developing the power of
silicon, Dow Corning provides solutions to help our customers succeed.
From silicon carbide wafers and epitaxy to materials for packaging, protection
and assembly, Dow Corning offers a wide variety of products and
technologies enabling efficient implementation of next generation sustainable
power and affordable solid state lighting solutions.
