ECPE is providing the organizational platform for two industrial working groups on ´Automotive Power Module Qualification (AQG 324)´ and ´Power Semiconductor Reliability for Railway Application´. Based on own WG rules of procedure and the ECPE Code of Conduct including the instructions for compliance with competition law the members work on joint industry standards for power module qualification and reliability testing.
The ECPE Working Group on ´Power Semiconductor Reliability for Railway Application´ has been established in November 2017 in cooperation with the European PINTA Project in the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking. The focus of the working group is on environmental conditions for power semiconductors used in railway application especially under humidity load incl. water condensation and chemical attack.
