Integrated Power Devices (IPD)
The integrated power device with added functionalities and best-in-class IGBT performance
Integrated Power Device (IPD) is a new product family at Infineon for the induction heating application. IPD leverages integration and added- functionalies. IEWS20R5135IPB, as the lead product of Integraded Power Device series, co-packed a 1350 V, 20 A IGBT in RC-H5 technology and a unique protection gate driver IC in TO-247 6-pin package, which has the same dimensions and single screw hole as the standard TO-247 3- and 4-pin packages.
The TO-247 6-pin package allows easier handling during manufacturing, as well as less board space. Combined with a simplified application design requiring fewer components, lower BOM costs and reduced design-in effort are possible.
Integrated Power Device Protect (IPD Protect) features not only the industry’s best IGBT performance considering blocking voltage, static losses and conduction losses in induction cooktop applications and other soft switching application but also integrated protection functions.
Its original concept provides protection against overvoltage, overcurrent, and overtemperature and additional features such as a unique active clamp control, fault condition notification, and a special two level turn-on gate driving current that reduces significantly the typical high startup peak current. These integrated protection functions provide a simple and robust solution for increased overall system reliability.
The fast growing market of induction heating systems requires ever higher performance and better reliability levels; IPD Protect provides a simple and robust solution with increased overall system reliability to enhance your induction heating products.
