International Rectifier (El Segundo, CA) expanded its portfolio of 600-V insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) in a variety of packages. The new rugged, reliable IRxx46xx Series of devices are optimized for a complete power range spectrum. This includes from small motors and loads to industrial applications such as uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), solar, induction heating, industrial motor and welding applications. The family of 23 IGBTs uses trench thin wafer Field Stop technology to offer low and balanced conduction and switching losses. Co-packaged with a soft recovery low Qrr diode, the new devices are optimized for ultra-fast switching with 5-µs short circuit rating and feature low VCE(ON) and positive VCE(ON) temperature coefficient for easy paralleling. The new IGBTs:
- Are suitable for a wide range of switching frequencies
- Deliver higher system efficiency and rugged transient performance.
- Offer an internal soft recovery diode to improve system efficiency and reduce EMI.
