Uniterruptible Power Supplies

Uninterruptible Power Supplies  (UPS)

Uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) have and continue to play a vital role in end-application system reliability and continuity of operation. The highly competitive UPS market always needs to increase UPS performance (higher efficiency, lower power dissipation, size, cost) and reliability requirements. These requirements can only be achieved if the components and the materials used keep pace. Newer IGBT (insulated gate bipolar transistors) devices allow UPS designers to achieve these performance improvements, especially when used with CPS's AlSiC baseplates for thermal conduction and dissipation. Low switching and conduction losses are essential in UPS designs.

Easy control, excellent switching characteristics and high reliability today make IGBTs and AlSiC baseplates the best choice for most medium and high-power UPS applications.
