IGBT7 and EC7 diode technology
We could save up to 20% of energy or 17 million tons of CO2 if only half of all industrial drives had an electric speed control
The 7th generation of TRENCHSTOP™ IGBTs is especial designed for variable speed drives. Based on the new micro-pattern trench technology, which offer a high level of controllability. These features bring significant loss reduction in the application, especially for industrial drives, which usually operate at moderate switching frequency.
Every switch needs a driver, and the right driver makes a difference. Together with the TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT7, we also offer the EiceDRIVER™ gate driver ICs, including low side driver, level-shift driver, and isolated driver. The EiceDRIVER™ family offers a wide range of output current options (from 0.1 A to 14 A) and different protection features like DESAT, Miller clamp, OCP, shutdown, integrated bootstrap diode, and isolation.
650 V TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT7 T7 Discrete
The switching frequency flexibility shown in table below is going from below 5 kHz up to 40 kHz, basically covers, the whole range of TRENCHSTOP (60T and 60DTP) or Highspeed family. It is a one to one alternative to predecessor generations with improved performance.
Easy Power Modules with TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT7
Our Easy 3B package is now equipped with the brand-new 950V TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT7 S7 and L7 technology, which is optimized for 1500V PV string inverter. The S7 chip is optimized for 16kHz switching frequency whereas the L7 is optimized for 50Hz/60Hz. Together this chipset can enable a string inverter design capable of more than 200kW and weight well below 100kg. We will offer both inverter and boost solution with this IGBT7 chipset.
Our Easy 1B and Easy 2B family are fully equipped with the brand-new TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT7 technology, which provides higher power density, greatly reduced losses, and offers a high level of controllability in drives applications. The new portfolio, which is tailored for industrial drives application, offers a complete solution up to 11 kW with PIM modules and up to 22 kW with six-pack modules for the inverter platform.
All the new TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT7 Easy modules are designed with the same pin-out as the former generation, TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT4 modules. Thus, the design cycle and the design efforts of the new inverter platform will be reduced.
EconoDUAL™ 3 with TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT7
System simplification and reduced costs by highest power density and performance
The EconoDUAL™ 3 modules with the latest TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT7 chip generation extend the existing 1200 V IGBT4 portfolio with current ratings from 300 to 900 A . The FF750R12ME7_B11 and FF900R12ME7_B11 feature an improved housing for handling higher currents, and temperatures within the same footprint. FF300R12ME7_B11, FF450R12ME7_B11 and FF600R12ME7_B11 complete the portfolio towards lower current ratings.
In combination with the TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT7 technology, they show a significant reduction of losses, a high level of controllability and switching softness, as well as high short-circuit capability. Together with the maximum operation temperature of 175°C at overload, high efficiency and power density are achieved, enabling system simplification and cost reduction.
