IGBT Enhances Energy Efficiency

June 22, 2016
Infineon Technologies launched a new 600 V TRENCHSTOP Performance IGBT delivering the next level of efficiency.

Infineon Technologies launched a new 600 V TRENCHSTOP Performance IGBT delivering the next level of efficiency. The new discrete IGBT provides high energy efficiency and reliability at a competitive price point for applications like air conditioning, solar PV inverters, drives and uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

Based on Infineon's TRENCHSTOP technology, the new IGBT is optimized for hard switching topologies working at frequencies of up to 30 kHz. The new TRENCHSTOP Performance IGBT series combines the best trade-off between conduction and switch-off energy losses with outstanding robustness, 5 µsec short circuit capability and excellent electromagnetic interference (EMI) behavior.

The 600 V TRENCHSTOP Performance is an attractive alternative to the predecessor TRENCHSTOP IGBT from Infineon as well as to competing products. In a plug-and-play replacement the new TRENCHSTOP Performance IGBT yields reduced losses of 7 percent at switching frequency of 8 kHz. An unmatched 11 percent lower total loss is delivered for switching frequency of 15 kHz.

Making use of the same packages, redesigns for higher efficiency and competitive cost can be realized easily, fast and with low efforts. The 600 V TRENCHSTOP Performance IGBT contributes to more energy efficient power consumption, higher reliability and longer operational lifetime of the application. For end consumers this translates into a lower electricity bill, sustainability and environmental protection.
