IRs Automotive-Qualified 600V Trench IGBT In D2Pak Deliver High Power Density in Hybrid & Electric Vehicle Applications

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. International Rectifier, IR (NYSE: IRF), a world leader in power management technology, today announced the introduction of a family of automotive-qualified 600V 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 600V trench IGBT features a nominal current of 24A and a minimum short circuit rating of 5s. 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 175C maximum operating temperature.

Co-packaged with a diode and available in a surface mount package, IRs new automotive- qualified IGBTs allow customers to develop a compact design for hybrid and electric vehicle applications requiring high power density, said Benjamin Jackson, Senior Power Switch and Module Product Manager, IRs Automotive Products Business Unit.

The new IGBT is also available in TO-262 and TO-220 packages for standard through-hole assembly. IRs automotive IGBTs are subject to dynamic and static part average testing combined with 100 percent automated wafer level visual inspection as part of IRs automotive quality initiative targeting zero defects. The new devices are all environmentally friendly and assembled with IRs automotive grade bill of materials which are lead-free and RoHS compliant.
