“Tail-less” 600V IGBTs from STMicroelectronics Break Through Power-Design Constraints
STMicroelectronics’ advanced 600V trench-gate field-stop IGBT1 V series have a smooth and tail-less turn-off characteristic, saturation voltage as low as 1.8V, and maximum operating junction temperature of 175°C, allowing increased system energy efficiency, higher switching frequencies, and simplified thermal and EMI2 design.
The new IGBTs are extremely robust, featuring high dV/dt capability. A co-packaged ultra-fast soft-recovery diode minimizes turn-on energy losses. Diode-free variants are also available for more cost-sensitive applications.
ST’s V series IGBTs rated from 20A to 80A are in production now in TO-3P, TO-3PF, TO-220, TO-220FP, TO-247 or D2PAK packages. The 40A/600V STGW40V60DF in TO-247 package is priced at $2.80 for orders over 1,000 pieces. For further information please visit www.st.com/igbt.
