Expanding its portfolio of IGBTs, International Rectifier has announced the IRGP47xx family of rugged, reliable 650V devices. Optimised for ultra-fast switching of 8-30KHz, the IGBTs are designed for applications including solar inverters, welding equipment, industrial motors, induction heating and UPS.
Utilising trench thin-wafer technology to reduce conduction and switching losses, the 15-90A IRGP47xx family delivers increased system efficiency. The IGBTs provide an increased short circuit rating of 6µs and positive VCE(ON) temperature coefficient for easy parallelling. During extreme weather variations and AC-line instability, this higher breakdown voltage eliminates the requirement for voltage suppression devices and improves reliability.
Featuring typical low VCE(ON) of 1.7V at 100°C, the IGBTs offer low total switching energy to reduce power dissipation and are suitable for a wide range of switching frequencies. The IRGP47xx devices are available as discrete devices or co-packaged with a soft recovery low Qrr diode.
“Featuring ultra-fast switching frequency and low conduction and switching losses, the 650V IRGP47xx family offers a cost-effective solution for applications that require a high level of efficiency, ruggedness and reliability in a smaller footprint,” said Llewellyn Vaughan-Edmunds, IGBT Product Marketing Manager, Energy Saving Products Business Unit, IR.
Supplied in TO-220, TO-247 and D2PAK packages, the RoHS compliant IRGP47xx IGBTs are available now from $1.32 in 10,000 unit quantities.
