Based on trench-field stop (TFS) technology, the 1200 V IGBT M series is designed for applications working at a switching frequency between 2 and 20 kHz. With highly optimized conduction and turn-off characteristics, as well as turn-on losses, these IGBTs are ideal for use in hard-switching circuits in applications such as solar inverters, welding equipment, UPS and industrial motor drives.
A minimum short-circuit withstand time of 10 µs at 150 °C starting junction temperature combined with a maximum operating junction temperature of 175 °C and a wide safe operating area (SOA) ensures rugged performance in harsh environments.
For cost-sensitive applications, diode-free variants are available. With a current rating of 8 A, 15 A, 25 A and 40 A, they are available in standard or long-lead TO-247 packages.
Low loss IGBT series for applications up to 20 kHz
High robustness and reliability thanks to 1200 V breakdown voltage, 10 µs min. short-circuit rating (at 150 °C starting TJ) and extended max operating TJ of 175 °C
Thin IGBT die for increased thermal resistance
Positive VCE(sat) temperature coefficient, with tight parameter distribution, for design simplification and easy paralleling
Optimized diode for fast recovery (high level of softness, low EMI and turn-on losses)
Ideal for hard-switching topologies up to 20 kHz, ST’s 1200 V IGBT M series complements ST’s 1200 V IGBT S series and H series, which are designed for optimum efficiency at up to 8 kHz and over 20 kHz respectively.
