Danfoss A/S Key Developments

Heraeus and Danfoss Conclude Agreement for Die Top System

Heraeus and Danfoss have concluded an exclusive cooperation agreement to market the Heraeus's Die Top System. The Die Top System, developed from Danfoss Bond Buffer technology, offers new assembly and joining technology for silicon and silicon carbide semiconductors. With its new design, the Die Top System not only increases the power module's current carrying capability, it also boosts its power cycling capability by a factor of ten or more. This makes it possible to have junction temperatures of up to 200â °C. A highly conductive copper foil is applied to the semiconductor chip using a sinter paste. This distributes the current evenly across the semiconductor chip, reducing heat and better balancing hot spots in the semiconductor. The foil also strengthens the chip during production for the power module. As a result, more efficient copper bonding wires can be used in place of traditional aluminum bonding wires.
