Automotive qualified IGBTs
Infineon’s range of Automotive IGBTs are designed for high voltage switching applications. Due to their high-efficiency and reliability they are the perfect match for hybrid vehicles and electric cars.
Our highly reliable semiconductor solutions support a wide range of motors, generators and power classes, enabling compact and cost-efficient system designs that offer high energy efficiency thanks to the reduction of power losses.
Our HybridPACK™ family enables a smooth transition across all power classes from HEV to EV (from 10 kW to 175 kW). These integrated power modules contain all power semiconductors required to drive electric motors of up to 175 kW, with the added bonus of compact inverter designs and optimum support for water cooling.
Our EasyPACK™ automotive power modules with a high-speed IGBT3 and rapid diode enable a compact design and the highest energy efficiency ratings for converters from about 2–10 kW. The EasyPACK™ 1B/2B is the perfect flexible power module solutions for low-power charging solutions.
High-efficiency, low-loss automotive IGBT discretes bundle our outstanding trench- and fieldstop technologies to reduce saturation voltages well below the levels offered by competing standard NPT IGBTs – without increasing the switching losses. These IGBT discretes offer maximum flexibility and scalability when it comes to the application design, for all power classes.
Low conduction losses and high reliability. Therefore RC-Drives IGBT technology has been developed by Infineon as a cost optimized solution by offering space saving advantages due to monolithically integrated diode. Furthermore the technology provides outstanding performance for smooth switching behavior and low EMI levels even at the maximum junction temperature of 175°C.
With the HybridPACK™ family Infineon has developed new power semiconductor modules which have been specifically designed for hybrid electric vehicle applications. Variations in the requirements for mild and full hybrid applications have been taken into account for each design. In combination with the selection of six different packages versatility of design integration is provided.
The automotive Easy 1B and Easy 2B Modules provide a platform for flexible topologies for applications with a power range of up to 6kW. The automotive Easy Module Series is based on the well established industrial Easy Module version. The availability of a high voltage battery system in both HEVs and EVs offers the possibility to increase the efficiency and to reduce the cost of some applications that are today supplied by the low voltage board-net (14V) in IC engine vehicles.
