SKYPER Prime O is an IGBT driver with optical interface and galvanically insulated temperature and DC link signals. SKYPER Prime O is designed and qualified with the IGBT module SEMITRANS10 and offers an Plug & Play bundle with improved SOA characteristic.

This saves costly qualification and redesign loops and at the same time offers significant performance advantages in various applications.

SKYPER Prime O offers galvanically isolated, highly accurate DC-link and temperature signals as a PWM signal to the controller. So very compact high power inverters can be built without costly sense circuits, cabling effort or power supplies.

In addition, second source requirements are covered, both on driver and on module side. Electrical and optical interfaces are available.
