"Power Module Reliability (PEMREL) addresses the clean sky’s call “Sample PEM (Power Electronic Module) construction for testing, characterisation and manufacturability assessment. This proposal aims to compliment other research into the development of an all SiC 10kW inverter, implemented in a double-side cooled, non-hermetic sandwich packaging technology (no bondwires), able to withstand a nominal ambient temperature range of -60°C to +200°C.
Key developments will include FMMEA, and the development of physics-of-failure reliability models for both type 1 & 2 modules. These modules will be tested for electrical and thermal chracterisation. Power and passive cycling of the modules will be undertaken to generate reliability data for validating the developed reliability models."
