In May 1997 the European Commission started the project "Highly Integratable Converter for Advanced AC Photovoltaics" as a part of the Non-Nuclear JOULE III Program. The goal of this project was to develop a Module Integrated Converter (MIC) with extended lifetime (at least 15 years) and low production costs.
One crucial factor for miniaturisation is the integration of many functions into a single chip, usually an Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC). The second factor is the increase of the switching frequency in order to reduce the size of passive components.
