IXYS Corporation (Milpitas, CA), a manufacturer of power semiconductors and integrated circuits for energy efficiency, power management, and motor control applications, is going to announce a new IGBT product line, the 900V XPT IGBTs. The current ratings range from 20A to 310A. Other features include:
- Designed for hard-switching applications, able to achieve an optimal balance between the turn-off energy loss and on-state voltage.
- Support for switching frequencies up to 50 kHz.
- Avalanche-rated, with square Reverse Bias Safe Operating Areas (RBSOA) up to the breakdown voltage of 900V – a necessary ruggedness in snubberless hard-switching applications.
