TRENCHSTOP™ 5 L5
L5 Technology - Low Saturation Voltage Optimized IGBT Setting a Efficiency Benchmark
The L5 low saturation voltage (VCEsat) TRENCHSTOP™ 5 IGBT family has been specifically optimized for low switching frequencies ranging from 50 Hz to 20 kHz. It offers low VCEsat of 1.05 V for 30 A IGBTs, lowest switching losses in reactive power mode, at cos φ <1 and high thermal stability of electrical parameters. The intrinsically low conduction losses of the 55µm TRENCHSTOP™ 5 thin wafer technology have been reduced further with additional optimization of the carrier profile.
A efficiency level is reachable with the 1.05 V (VCEsat) TRENCHSTOP™ 5 L5 technology for low speed switching devices.

Optimal performance and high thermal stability
The mild positive temperature coefficient of CE(sat) with only 2% drift under emperature change from 25°C to 175°C allows easy paralleling keeping the efficieny high. High efficieny and low switching losses of the L5 IGBT simplifies thermal management allowing to reduce the cooling infrastructure, using less heat sink and a smaller fan, thus significantly lowering the manufacturing costs.
