Abstract:

This Second Quarterly Report describes the progress on the MM and TE program for Transcalent Heat-Pipe cooled thyristors. A description of the device and the pertinent state-of-the-art on the engineering sample devices is included. Conclusion of redesigning for production is described for the device parts, processes and sub-assemblies. Also described are the check-out and the modification of the high current, high voltage test equipment. Actual test results on initial devices are listed. The present status includes that refinement of the fixtures and the process specifications, the assembly and processing of device parts and subassemblies as well as the completed check-out of all but two pieces of the electrical test equipment. Plans for the next Quarter include completion of the engineering sample devices electrical, mechanical and environmental testing of these samples as well as initiate planning of the Confirmatory sample phase.
