Mitsubishi Electric Corporation has announced its new J1-Series power modules featuring a compact 6-in-1 package mainly for use in electric and hybrid vehicles.

Power modules for automobiles must deliver higher reliability than industrial-use modules due to the extremely high standards for vehicle safety.

The new J1-Series power modules feature compact package with small footprint, low power loss and high reliability for use in the inverters of electric and hybrid vehicles. Mass production is expected to begin in 2015.
