IGBT Enhances Efficiency in Low-Frequency Industrial Applications
Productive Product: Fairchild Semiconductor’s 600V/30A IGBT, the FGH30N60LSD, addresses the need for low conduction losses in low-frequency (50 Hz to 400 Hz) industrial applications such as solar inverters, welding machines and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). Featuring extremely low saturation voltage (VCE(sat), Typ. = 1.1 V), the FGH30N60LSD is designed to increase system efficiency while meeting low-frequency requirements. For further energy efficiency in industrial applications which are using both low frequency switches and high switching frequency switches such as solar inverters, this IGBT can be combined with the company’s FCH47N60F SuperFET FRFET MOSFET that offers high operating frequency of up to 250kHz and extremely low on-resistance (RDS(on), Typ. = 0.062 ohm). The FGH30N60LSD is a MOS-gated high-voltage switching device that integrates a fast-recovery diode (FRD) to help designers reduce component count while further ensuring system reliability. The FGH30N60LSD uses lead-free (Pb-free) terminals and has been characterized for moisture sensitivity in accordance with the Pb-free reflow requirements of the joint IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-020.
