Engineering tomorrow’s power modules 

Maintaining a competitive edge means having the flexibility to move with your customers’ changing demands. It also means trusting your suppliers to deliver exactly what you need, when you need it. In Danfoss, we focus solely on creating solutions that are uniquely tailored to your needs. 

'Tailored to your needs' means that you collaborate closely with our application experts who can provide support throughout the entire process, from design and prototyping, through testing and quality assurance, to high volume production.

Take your application to the next level

Are you determined to take advantage of the newest technological opportunities? Are your ambitions being limited by the capabilities of standard components? To beat the competition, you know that you need to think differently. And here the choice is yours: Either design the application around a standard power module or design your power module to fit the application. Custom tailored power modules give you the power to integrate the module seamlessly into exactly the application you need. In addition, customization offers you cost-effectiveness on system level, especially for high-volume manufacturing.

As a leading supplier of IGBT (insulated-gate bipolar transistors) and MOSFET (metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor) power modules for various applications, we realize that customized power modules are not for everyone. But for many, an individually designed power module is the path to achieve demanding cost and performance targets at system level.

Over decades, Danfoss has been helping high-volume manufacturers design solutions that take their application or power system to the next level. Whether you are seeking to optimize overall system cost, minimize power losses, increase power density or efficiencies, it all starts at power module level.

 

Harvest the benefits of our proven technology portfolio

Today, Danfoss is the world largest independent customized power module manufacturer. The power module usually comprise of insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs), diodes or metal-oxide semiconductor field effect transistors (MOSFETs). Being a front-runner in the packaging of power semiconductors, we have developed a market-leading portfolio of innovative packaging technologies that address the most challenging aspects of advanced power electronics. From many years of collaboration with some of the largest automotive, renewable and industrial manufacturers, we have gained a unique skill-set and experience in designing solutions that meet the stringent design, cost and reliability requirements of our customers.

 

Being a market leader in independent packaging of power semiconductors, we have developed a second-to-none portfolio of innovative packaging technologies that address the most challenging aspects of advanced power electronics. This enables us to design and manufacture the most reliable and cost-efficient solution for your individual application. Selecting a custom-tailored power module allows full utilization of our world-class technology portfolio:

Danfoss Bond Buffer® advanced bonding-and-joining-technology

ShowerPower® and SP3D® direct liquid-cooling technology

Danfoss unique transfer moulding process

Cooperation towards results

Work together with our application experts, who can provide support throughout the entire process, from design and prototyping, through testing and quality assurance, to high-volume production. Our people, our processes and our manufacturing sites are fully optimized and dedicated to creating solutions in collaboration with our customers. Using a fast and flexible management and design process, Danfoss is able to deliver the first prototypes within a few weeks. When production begins, deliveries are integrated seamlessly into your supply chain.

Our many years of experience, highly automated processes, state-of-the-art TS-certified production knowledge and close collaboration on all aspects of design, ensure that we fully understand your exact demands and are able to fulfill your strict requirements. With a strong focus on R&D, our capabilities include:

Electrical and mechanical design

Lifetime assessment

Product characterization

Reliability calculation

Qualification and testing capabilities

Thermal and electrical simulation

High-volume manufacturing

Flexible component and supplier choice

In the cross-section where advanced power electronics meets business requirements, you will find Danfoss. Our business is built around our engineering competences just as our business model is designed specifically for developing customized solutions in high volumes. 

One of the key advantages of working with Danfoss is flexibility. We are technologically independent of any specific semiconductor supplier. We do not want to tie ourselves, or you, to one single supplier. We provide the flexibility to choose between several manufacturers of IGBTs, MOSFETs or diodes. That represents a significant freedom to choose the optimum solution. Each component is selected to meet your specific requirements, from the density and type of semiconductors to the material of the base plate. That gives us complete freedom to choose the optimum solution regardless of the application. Being chip independent, we can offer you the advantages of supply security in times of tight supply. This will improve design flexibility and reliability of the supply chain, especially in a rapidly growing market.

Exclusive use of proprietary technologies

Working together with us on your application, we guarantee you the exclusive use of proprietary developments. The guaranteed exclusive usage of proprietary technologies will keep you ahead of your competitors by allowing you to set the standards. 

Compatibility with industrial plug-in standards – supporting a dual-sourcing strategy

We also design, manufacture and market a wide range of power modules which are plug-in compatible with industrial standards. This makes us an ideal partner for corporations that employ dual-sourcing strategies. Either way, you benefit from cost-effective solutions that contribute unique features and capabilities to your system designs.
