IMI Inaugurates its Power Module Facility


Reading time ( words)

Integrated Micro-Electronics Inc. (IMI), one of the world’s leading providers of electronics manufacturing services (EMS) and power semiconductor assembly and test services, inaugurated its Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) module or power module facility on December 11, 2015.

Research by IHS, Inc., a leading provider of diverse global market and economic information, shows that power modules have a significant future for the electronics world. It will account for 30 percent of the total power of semiconductor market by 2019.

IGBT modules are terminal power semiconductor devices used as electronic switches that combine high efficiency and fast switching. The modules provide the ability to switch to electric power often used on trains, refrigerators, lamp ballasts, air conditioners, solar applications, motion devices, and on anything that needs electric switching and requires power efficiency.

Some of the benefits of these modules are higher power density and higher reliability. Original equipment manufacturers are realizing this, and they demand modular power solutions, integrating them into various subsystems and using them in different applications.

The new IMI facility is into the production and process development of power modules that involve highly flexible machines that can accommodate different application requirements of customers.

IMI president and CEO Arthur Tan said, “IMI is one of the few companies in the world capable of handling not only the electronics manufacturing side of the power modules but also the power semiconductor side of it. IMI has the capability to scale and produce within a wide breadth of module specifications.”

“The power module business is very much aligned with IMI’s strategy of offering innovative solutions which will impact our top and bottom lines. Further, it is in line with the expanding business in our target markets of automotive and industrial segments, Tan added.

Companies have been collecting data in large volumes. Highly varied data from manufacturing operations comes in quickly that needs to be validated, and its value prioritized so that it can be turned into something useful—transformed from big data to smart data. The amount of data available has grown exponentially into big data. Twenty years ago, a PCB work order resulted in 100 data records, megabytes of data; today, it is 10 billion records, terabytes of data. The investment in collecting this data and storing it is high. However, without a way to analyze the data, without analytics, it will not result in ROI.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
