Listing: TSX Venture Exchange
Symbol: DNX

LINCOLN, England, July 19, 2017 /CNW/ - Dynex Power Inc. (TSXV: DNX), a leading manufacturer of high power semiconductors and electronic equipment, is pleased to announce a significant industry-leading achievement: the initial delivery of the world's first hermetic, dynamic load balancing, Press-pack IGBT.

Mr. Clive Vacher, President and Chief Executive Officer commented, "The design features of the new Dynex Press-pack IGBT deliver market-leading performance and reliability, even in the most extreme conditions.  This product is unique in the marketplace.  It encompasses the most technologically-advanced design of any press-pack in the world, and provides a new benchmark of performance in the industry.  Furthermore, it is designed for a wide range of customer applications: it will not only provide a more effective solution to existing and new-design press-pack based systems, but also open up new industries to the benefits of switching to press-pack technology."

The Dynex Press-pack IGBT range offers the following advantages over traditional press-pack IGBTs:

  1. Dynamic load balancing, ensuring uniform contact pressure for optimum current sharing and reliability.
  2. Mechanical overload protection.
  3. Suitability for use with standard pressure contact device clamps and heatsinks.
  4. Compact construction for market-leading current density.

The Dynex Press-pack IGBT range is based on a flexible, scalable design, making it straightforward to produce devices with a variety of contact diameters, current ratings and IGBT:FRD chip ratios.  Dynex's chip design and in-house fabrication capabilities make it possible to tune chipsets to specific applications. 

Dynex Press-pack IGBT devices are now available at a variety of power levels up to 3000A at 4500V, making Dynex the ideal partner for both new and existing designs.  Further growth up to 4000A and beyond will be available later this year.

Forward-looking Statements
In commenting on its expectations, the Company cautioned existing and potential shareholders about relying on the Company's expectations in that the Company's expectations contain forward looking statements and assumptions which are subject to the risks and uncertainties of the markets and the future, which could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations, and which are each difficult and subjective to forecast. Certain of those risks and uncertainties are discussed in the Management's Discussion and Analysis for the quarter ended March 31st , 2016 and include, among other things, risks and uncertainties relating to: the level of worldwide demand for power semiconductors and power semiconductor assemblies; the level of investment in power electronic equipment, electrification of transport systems, alternative power generation and high quality power transmission and distribution; and fluctuations in exchange rates between Canadian Dollars, Sterling, US dollars and Euros. As a consequence of these and other risks and uncertainties, shareholders and potential investors must make their own independent judgments about the accuracy and reliability of the Company's expectations. Dynex disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward looking statement whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
