Hi Alvin! Some igbts have 2 in one package, that are in series. It makes it really easy to use 3 of those to form a 3 phase bridge, which is basically the power section of a 3 phase AC controller. Other igbts are just a single transistor, which would probably be used in a DC controller, although you could also just use 6 of those in a 3 phase AC controller.

We also need a control board that has a 15v supply that shares the ground with the 5v supply, and we need the control board to do something with the desaturation fault signal from the igbt driver board.
kits and boards
