Mitsubishi Electric power modules are manufactured with state-of-the-art technologies that ensure the highest levels of performance and reliability while offering impressive energy savings for the products and systems they're used in. Our line-up of products is extensive, ranging from power modules developed to control high-voltage power generation, industrial manufacturing and railway systems to applications in home products, such as controlling the electricity used by air conditioners, washing machines and refrigerators. To maintain our market-leading position, the company's R&D activities aiming to realize further reductions in power consumption and size are ongoing.
High power devices contribute to increased efficiency and energy savings by supporting the high voltage, high current and usage environment of rollers in steel works, electric power systems and the subway. From rectifier diodes to a variety of Thyristors and stacks, Mitsubishi Electric offers a broad range of new high power devices.
Mitsubishi Electric's lineup of power semiconductors include transistor arrays, HVICs (High Voltage IC) and sensors. Using the output from a 3-volt microcomputer, our transistor arrays make possible bufferless direct drive, helping contribute to lighter weight and more compact design in a variety of equipment. An HVIC is a high-voltage IC with various built-in protection functions; it uses input signals from a microcomputer or other device to directly drive gates in power MOSFETs or IGBTs. We also provide pressure sensors for such applications as barometric pressure gauges, as well as acceleration sensors to measure vibration in LCD projectors and industrial equipment.
