1200-V soft switching IGBT supports hybrid and electric vehicle applications

April 12, 2012 | Paul Buckley | 222902175
1200-V soft switching IGBT supports hybrid and electric vehicle applications International Rectifier has introduced an automotive-qualified IGBT optimized for soft switching applications such as Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heater applications as used in electric and hybrid vehicles.
Available in a compact Super TO-220 package, the 1200 V AUIRGDC0250 features low VCE(on) to reduce power dissipation and achieve higher power density, positive VCE(on) temperature coefficient making the device well suited for paralleling, and optimized square reverse bias safe operating area (RBSOA) while the soft switching nature of the AUIRGDC0250 makes it ideal for helping adhere to system level EMI regulations

The low conduction losses of the AUIRGDC0250 make it well suited for relay replacement sockets including PTC heater applications while its Super TO-220 package enables customers to meet electrical creepage requirements.

IR’s automotive IGBTs are subject to dynamic and static part average testing combined with 100 percent automated wafer level visual inspection as part of IR’s automotive quality initiative targeting zero defects. The new devices are all environmentally friendly and assembled with IR’s automotive grade bill of materials which are lead-free and RoHS compliant.

Availability and Pricing

Pricing begins at US $2.05 for the AUIRGDC0250 each in 100,000-unit quantities. Production orders are available immediately.
