600-V Trench ultrafast IGBTs offers reliability benefits

February 08, 2013 // By Paul Buckley
International Rectifier is expanding the company's family of 600 V insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) with the introduction of the IRGP4640D, IRGP4650D and IRGP4660D.

The new rugged, reliable devices are optimized for uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), solar, induction heating, industrial motor and welding applications.

The 40 A IRGP4640D, 50 A IRGP4650D and 60 A IRGP4660D IGBTs utilize trench thin wafer technology to offer lower conduction and switching losses. Co-packaged with a soft recovery low Qrr diode, the new devices are optimized for ultra-fast switching (8-30 kHz) with 5us short circuit rating and feature low Vce(on) and positive Vce(on) temperature coefficient for easy paralleling.

The new IGBTs are suitable for a wide range of switching frequencies and deliver higher system efficiency and rugged transient performance. They are offered in an industry standard TO-247 package, with a maximum junction temperature of 175°C and low EMI for improved reliability.

Availability and Pricing

Pricing for the IRGP4640DPbF begins at $2.15 10,000-unit quantities. Production orders are available immediately. The devices are RoHS compliant.
