Panasonic Commercializes High Heat-Resistant Semiconductor Encapsulation Material for Power Devices

Del

Panasonic Corporation today announced that it developed a semiconductor encapsulation material for power devices that boasts the industry's top-class*1 heat-resistance performance (glass transition temperature) of 210°C and superior long-term reliability, and will start shipping samples of the products, CV8540 series, from October 2015.

Requirements for vehicles that consume less energy and for smaller sized and lighter weight in-vehicle devices have been increasing. To address these issues, the industry is paying attention to power devices based on silicon carbide (SiC) or gallium nitride (GaN). When used in a vehicle, however, power devices must have superior high-temperature resistance and high-current characteristics, as well as excellent long-term reliability.

Silicon devices that are currently in wide use can sometimes reach temperatures of up to about 125 to 150°C when in operation. Because of their ability to deal with high current, SiC or GaN devices can operate in such high-temperature environments, even when temperatures soar to 200°C or more.

To make the most of this advantage, semiconductor encapsulation materials for power devices must also have greater advanced heat resistance and long-tern reliability. Conventional encapsulation materials are at a disadvantage in that they peel off from the leadframe and the device when subjected to high temperatures. Panasonic has now achieved the industry's top-class*1 heat-resistance performance and improved the adhesiveness inside the material, allowing the company to develop and commercialize a semiconductor encapsulation material with superior long-tern reliability.

This encapsulation material has the following advantages:

1. The industry's highest heat-resistance characteristics contribute to the use of power devices in a heat-generating or high-temperature environment.

High-temperature resistance characteristics (glass transition temperature of the encapsulation material): up to 210°C (our conventional products*2: 170 to 180°C)

2. Superior long-term reliability contributes to improving the reliability of power devices.

In the following environmental resistance tests, neither cracks in the encapsulation material nor peeling from the leadframe and the power device element were observed.
• Thermal cycle test: -40 to 200°C, 1,000 cycles
• High-temperature shelf test: Left at 200°C for 3,000 hours

*1 As a semicondoctor encapsulation material for SiC or GaN power devices. Internal investigation as of October 1, 2015
*2 Our conventional product (CV4100 series)

CorFlow Presents Fundamental New Insights into the Coronary Microcirculation at ACC22.2.2018 09:10Pressemelding

CorFlow Therapeutics AG (www.corflow-therapeutics.ch) today announced that the company will present fundamental new insights into the coronary microcirculation during the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) in Orlando, FL, March 10-12, 2018. CorFlow has since its foundation in June 2016 worked to document that the Controlled Flow Infusion (CoFITM) technology is able to measure the coronary microvascular status and provide therapy to the compromised coronary microcirculation at the same time. Microvascular obstruction (MVO) affects more than half of the acute heart attack patients and is an independent predictor for complications including heart failure which constitutes a high cost burden for the world-wide health care system. To address this large unmet medical need in interventional cardiology, CorFlow has developed an in-vivo model which reproducibly creates MVO in an occlusion-reperfusion model with very low complication rates. Using this in-vivo model, the C
