New IGBTs designed for electric and hybrid vehicles

Oct. 5, 2011
International Rectifier announces a new family of automotive-qualified 600-V IGBTs optimized for variable speed motor control and power supply applications used in electric and hybrid vehicles.

International Rectifier announces a new family of automotive-qualified 600-V IGBTs optimized for variable speed motor control and power supply applications used in electric and hybrid vehicles. The new devices cover a broad current range and offer a short circuit rating of ≥5μs, low Vce(on), and positive Vce(on) temperature coefficient for various motor drive systems, from electric air conditioning to main traction inverters requiring high power density from 24 to 160 A.

Additional features common to the family include a square reverse bias safe operating area (SRBSOA), an integrated soft recovery diode, and a junction temperature of 175° C maximum. The company's automotive IGBTs are subject to dynamic and static part average testing combined with 100% automated wafer level visual inspection. The new devices are environmentally friendly, lead-free, and RoHS compliant.

For more information, contact International Rectifier, 233 Kansas St., El Segundo, CA 90245. Phone: (310) 252-7105.
