March 2013 – IXYS release a new range of 650V XPT™ Trench IGBTs
Published on: 08/03/2013
GD Rectifiers is please to announce the availability of the new IXYS range of 650V XPT™ Trench IGBTs. These are highly efficient low on-state voltage IGBTs
The current ratings of devices in the new product family range from 30A to 200A at a high temperature of 110°C. With on-stage voltages as low as 1.7V, these new eXtreme-light Punch-Through (XPT™) devices are designed to minimise conduction and switching losses, especially in hard-switching applications. Optimised for different switching speed ranges (up to 60kHz), these IGBTs provide designers with flexibility in device selection in terms of cost, saturation voltage, and switching frequency. Devices co-packed with IXYS ultra-fast Sonic-FRD™ diodes are also available.
Developed using the IXYS XPT™ thin-wafer technology and state-of-the-art 4th generation (GenX4™) Trench IGBT process, these devices feature reduced thermal resistance, low energy losses, fast switching, low tail current, and high current densities. In addition, they display exceptional ruggedness under short-circuit conditions – a 10µs Short Circuit Safe Operating Area (SCSOA). Moreover these IGBTs have square Reverse Bias Safe Operating Areas (RBSOA) up to the breakdown voltage of 650V, making them ideal for snubber-less hard-switching applications. Other qualities include a positive collector-to-emitter voltage temperature coefficient which enables designers to use multiple devices in parallel to meet high current requirements and low gate charges which help reduce gate drive requirements and switching losses.
Thanks to its speed and ‘soft recovery’ characteristics, the co-packed Sonic-FRD™ diode is an ideal match for these XPT™ IGBTs in reducing turn-on and turn-off losses. It is optimised to suppress ringing oscillations and voltage spikes in recovery, thereby producing smooth switching waveforms and significantly lowering electromagnetic interference (EMI) in the process. The temperature stability of its forward voltage also helps lower switching losses when devices are operated in parallel.
The new IGBTs are well-suited for a wide variety of power conversion applications, including lighting control, battery chargers, motor drives, power inverters, power factor correction circuits, switch-mode power supplies, uninterruptible power supplies, E-Bikes, and welding machines.
These 650V XPT™ IGBTs are available in the following international standard packages: TO-247, TO-264, SOT-227B, PLUS247, and ISOPLUS247™. Some example part numbers are IXXH30N65B4, IXXN110N65C4H1, IXXK160N65C4, and IXXX200N65B4, with collector current ratings of 65A, 234A, 290A, and 370A, respectively.
