Dec 4, 2014 | Technology Media

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — International Rectifier, IR ® (NYSE: IRF), a world leader in power management technology, today announced the introduction of the AUIRGP66524D0 and AUIRGF66524D0 automotive-qualified 600V IGBTs optimized for small auxiliary motor drive applications including air conditioning compressors for electric and hybrid vehicles.

Leveraging IR's COOLiRIGBT™ platform and co-packaged with a soft recovery diode, the 24A AUIRGP66524D0 and AUIRGF66524D0 feature low VCE(ON) to reduce power dissipation and maximum junction temperature of 175°C to achieve extremely high power density.

Available in a standard length lead TO-247 and long lead TO-247 package, the new devices also offer a minimum 6μs short circuit rating at 150°C. A square reverse bias safe operating area (SRBSOA) provides additional ruggedness. The devices are designed with a positive VCE(ON) temperature coefficient for easy paralleling for higher power applications.

"The AUIRGP66524D0 and AUIRGF66524D0 deliver a rugged, efficient cost-effective solution to meet the demand of 600V motor drive applications used in today's electric and hybrid vehicles," said Ben Jackson, Principal Product Manager, Automotive IGBTs, Diodes and Modules.

IR's automotive IGBTs are subject to dynamic and static part average testing combined with 100 percent automated wafer level visual inspection as part of IR's automotive quality initiative targeting zero defects. The new devices are all environmentally friendly and assembled with IR's automotive grade bill of materials which are lead-free and RoHS compliant.
