Automotive-qualified 600-V Trench IGBT in D2Pak delivers high power density in Hybrid and EV applications

July 19, 2012 | Paul Buckley | 222902377
Automotive-qualified 600-V Trench IGBT in D2Pak delivers high power density in Hybrid and EV applications International Rectifier has introduced a family of automotive-qualified 600 V IGBTs for electric and hybrid vehicle applications including air conditioner inverters, pumps and Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heaters.
Co-packaged with a diode and available in a D2Pak package for compact surface mount systems, the new 600 V trench IGBT features a nominal current of 24 A and a minimum short circuit rating of 5 µs. The new devices also offer low VCE(on) to reduce power dissipation and achieve higher power density, and positive VCE(on) temperature coefficient making the device well suited for paralleling. The family of IGBTs also features an optimized square reverse bias safe operating area (RBSOA), and up to 175°C maximum operating temperature.

The new IGBT is also available in TO-262 and TO-220 packages for standard through-hole assembly. 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.
