IR Expands Portfolio of Rugged, Reliable, Ultra-fast 600 V IGBTs for UPS, Solar, Industrial Motor and Welding Applications

Nov 10, 2011 | Technology Media

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — International Rectifier, IR® (NYSE: IRF), a world leader in power management technology, today announced the expansion of its portfolio of rugged, reliable ultra-fast 600 V Trench Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs) with the introduction of the IRGPS4067DPbF and IRGP4066DPbF devices for uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), solar, industrial motor and welding applications.

The IRGPS4067DPbF and IRGP4066DPbF utilize Trench thin wafer technology to offer lower conduction and switching losses. Co-packaged with a soft recovery low Qrr diode, the new devices are optimized for ultra-fast switching (8KHz-30KHz) with 5us short circuit rating and feature low Vce(on) and positive Vce(on) temperature coefficient for easy paralleling.

"These new 600 V IGBTs are suitable for a wide range of switching frequencies due to their low Vce(on) and low switching losses while offering higher system efficiency and rugged transient performance for increased reliability," said Llewellyn Vaughan-Edmunds, IGBT product marketing manager, IR's Energy Saving Products Business Unit.

Offered as both die and packaged devices, and available with or without short-circuit rating, other key features of the new devices include maximum junction temperature of 175 °C and low EMI for improved reliability.

IR's new IGBT Selection Tool evaluates application conditions including bus voltage, switching frequency, and short circuit protection requirements. Located at http://mypower.irf.com/IGBT, the online tool provides an estimate of losses and suggests parts that can function within the given constraints. The tool also provides pricing for each part to enable designers to consider the effects of device choice on system cost. Datasheets are available via the part number links found above.
