Stay one step ahead of your transportation competitors while protecting the safety of passengers.
Transportation is a cornerstone of modern life. At CPS, we create high-quality products that keep the population moving across the world.
Over the years, we have honed in on serving traction vehicles and power drive systems. Traction vehicles include subway cars and trains while powerdrive systems include race cars and hybrid or electric vehicles.
Our main role when serving people movers involve the protection of IGBT power modules.
AlSiC-Pyrolytic Graphite Base Plates
This lightweight, high strength composite offers low thermal expansion compatible with electronics, while providing a hermetic envelope material for low strength, environmentally sensitive pyrolytic graphite.
Customize your pin fin cooler needs for maximum thermal conductivity in hybrid and electrical vehicle applications.
Increase your design options with our ability to cast difficult shapes with our proprietary metal matrix composites.
Micro Case Study
High Power and Thermal Cycling Capability
In 2018, we worked with a European electronics company in dire need of new power module solutions. Their existing modules struggled to manage power distribution and heat transfer across electric and hybrid-electric vehicles (EVs), decreasing performance and reliability.
CPS took charge of their power module replacement project, developing new AlSiC base plate designs that offered double-sided power module cooling. Compared with outdated, single-sided options, double-sided cooling utilizes heat sinks to remove thermal stress from both the top and bottom of the module at once.
Our solution improved heat transfer ability and reduced the burden of thermal load across modules – particularly valuable for managing the heat-intensive electrical components found in modern EVs.
