South Portland, Maine – Fairchild Semiconductor today
announced that Toshiba Carrier Corporation, a leading global manufacturer of industrial and household air
conditioners, has selected Fairchild’s Motion-Smart Power Module (SPM™) for its air-conditioning systems. The
FSBS10CH60, which integrates 16 discrete devices in a compact and thermally efficient Mini-DIP package, optimally
drives Toshiba Carrier’s highly energy-efficient DC rotary compressor.
offers simplified motor drive design and superb performance features allowing us to produce the most efficient air
conditioners in their class. Fairchild met our strict quality requirements and partnered with us to swiftly bring
our energy-saving product to market,” says
Tetsuji Yamashita, general manager, Electronics
Development Division, Toshiba Carrier.
“Fairchild’s highly integrated Motion-SPM devices
address a compelling need in the market for consumer products with optimized efficiency and reliability in a compact
and thermally efficient package. The FSBS10CH60 is ideal for inverter systems to meet energy-efficiency
requirements, providing competitive board-space savings, answering the increasing demand in low-power appliances for
compactness and high reliability. Fairchild continues to recognize the emerging need to manage power, accelerate
performance and provide products in the form factor the market demands,” says Taehoon Kim, vice president of
Fairchild’s Functional Power Group.
Fairchild’s Motion-SPM devices integrate three high-voltage ICs (HVICs), one low-voltage IC (LVIC), six IGBTs
and six fast-recovery diodes (FRDs) into a compact transfer-molded package.
Fairchild offers the most
comprehensive portfolio of power modules covering the full range of consumer appliances from 50W to 3kW. The
Motion-SPM series is an example of how Fairchild is leveraging its design and manufacturing expertise, as well as
its deep understanding of the markets it serves, to offer highly integrated solutions that meet specific application
