Diode's technology leads to lower static losses

Diode's technology leads to lower static losses
Now being shipped by Farnell is the 1200V TRENCHSTOP IGBT7 and emitter-controlled EC7 diode from Infineon. Packaged in the Easy housing, this EasyPIM IGBT7 provides higher power density, lower system cost, and reduced system size. The diode’s technology is based on latest micro-pattern trenches technology and optimised for industrial drive applications which means much lower static losses to meet energy efficiency requirements, softer switching and improved controllability.
