International Rectifier announced the expansion of its portfolio of 600-V Trench Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs) with the introduction of the IRGP4067DPbF and IRGP4066DPbF devices for uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), solar, industrial motor and welding applications. The IGBTs use Trench thin wafer technology to offer lower conduction and switching losses. Co-packaged with a soft recovery low Qrr diode, the new devices are optimized for ultra-fast switching (8 kHz to 30 kHz) with 5 us short circuit rating and feature low Vce(on) and positive Vce(on) temperature coefficient for paralleling. They are offered as both die and packaged devices, and are available with or without short-circuit rating. Other features of the new devices include maximum junction temperature of 175 °C and low EMI for improved reliability.
