Hysol GR600 is a black semiconductor-grade epoxy molding compound designed for the encapsulation and protection of power discrete semiconductor packages. It is designed with DPAK, D2PAK, TO220 and TO252 in mind. Once molded and post-mold cured, this product provides optimum protection and reliability for these capacitor devices. It is laser markable with low ionic properties that help achieve an excellent thermal cycling performance.
Hysol GR600 is an environmentally "green" product, meaning that it doesn't contain any halogens including bromine, antimony or phosphorus flame retardants. Previously, MG-series mold compounds dominated the space for power discrete semiconductor componentst but used halogen-containing flame retardants. This next generation epoxy mold compound replaces these older generation products. This material is designed to achieve JEDEC Level 1 requirements at 260°C reflow temperature on DPAK and D2PAK packages. Its fast cure time also ensures that it is compatible with the latest automold manufacturing equipment. Hysol GR600 meets UL 94 V-0 Flammability at 1/8 inch (3.18mm) thickness.
Designed for DPAK (TO252) & D2PAK (TO262) Power Discrete Packages
DPAK and D2PAK are power discrete semiconductor packages that are not easy to mold. The package geometry is not very difficult, but once molded, these devices need to be tested under BIAS before and after both humidity exposure and thermal cycling. This test is called the High Temperature Reverse Bias (HTRB) testing and is where most semiconductor epoxy mold compounds fail. Once biased, the device experience "gate leakage" and then fail catastrophically.
Furthermore, most DPAK and D2PAK packages are often built using a Nickel (Ni) plating. Nickel is notoriously difficult to adhere to and as such make it difficult to pass high MSL performance levels.
Finally, DPAK and D2PAK packages are still mature products and as such, the products used to mold them must be cost-competitive. The GR600 EMC is the first product in a series designed to meet all these criteria.
