Milpitas, Calif.-based IXYS Corp., a developer of power semiconductors for wind and solar conversion, has announced that its wholly owned U.K. subsidiary, Westcode Semiconductors Ltd., has expanded its portfolio of IXYS-branded pressure-contact dual thyristor and diode modules to encompass eight configurations, offering dual thyristor, thyristor/diode, diode/thyristor and dual diode combinations.

Available with repetitive peak off-state voltage grades from 1,200 V to 2,600 V, these modules are constructed using a new bus bar design, which retains an industry standard connection footprint, mounted on an electrically isolated baseplate. IXYS says that the simplified mechanical design aids rapid assembly and the full pressure contact construction complies with industry-standard package outline with UL recognition.

Applications for these devices include soft-starts, industrial drives, wind power converters, electrochemical power supplies and welding, plus all rectifier and power conversion in the multi-100 kW range.
