IR Introduces Efficient, Reliable Ultra-fast 1200 V IGBTs
for Induction Heating Applications

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. ó International Rectifier, IRģ (NYSE: IRF), a world leader in power management technology, today introduced a pair of efficient, reliable ultra-fast Trench Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs) optimized for induction heating and resonant switching applications such as welding and high power rectification.

The new 1200 V IGBTs utilize IRís proven thin-wafer trench technology to offer critical performance benefits including low VCE(on) and ultra-fast switching to reduce power dissipation and achieve higher power density. In addition, devices feature a 1300 V repetitive peak rating for added system reliability. The IGBTs are co-packaged with a low forward-voltage high peak current soft forward-recovery diode optimized for resonant zero current turn-on operation.

ďWith their rugged reliability, and higher power density and efficiency, IRís new 1200 V IGBTs are ideally suited to induction heating and resonant applications,Ē said Llewellyn Vaughan-Edmunds, IGBT product marketing manager, IRís Energy Saving Products Business Unit.

These new IGBTs complement IRís family of IGBTs for motor drive and hard switching applications. IRís focus on power applications allows for optimization of devices to meet the technical requirements of various power systems.
