Evaluation Board for IGBTs in TO-247 3pin and TO-247 4pin packages
The EVAL-IGBT-650V-TO-247-4 board enables the evaluation of IGBT performance during switching events, as for instance double pulse test. In particular it is possible to get a very fair comparison between TO-247 3 pin and TO-247 4pin packages.
The board allows easy setup and adjustment of the main parameters like switching current and voltage, on and off gate resistors and case temperature.
Alternatively, the board can be used in continuous operation. The basic phase-leg topology of the board can be easily configured for use as a step-down or step-up DC-DC converter.
Finally, the evaluation board can serve as a reference of a PCB layout with low parasitic inductance on the power loop.
