International Rectifier has introduced a comprehensive family of IGBT modules with a broad array of configurations and current ratings offering designers the flexibility to easily implement high power systems. The 72 modules are available with voltage ratings of 600 or 1200V and a variety of speeds and short circuit ratings to allow designers to optimise systems based on application requirements.

The IGBT modules are suitable for use in high power industrial applications such as motor drive inverters, SMPS, UPS, solar inverters and welding.

Using IR’s extremely rugged and reliable IGBT technologies (NPT with Planar-gate and Field Stop with Trench-gate) and established diode technology, the family offers a range of high efficiency robust modules in industry standard packages.

The industrial grade IGBTs feature an environmentally friendly and RoHS compliant BOM.

The IGBT modules complement IR’s iMOTION design platform which integrates digital, analogue and power technologies together in a flexible, mixed signal chipset to simplify motor control designs and bring energy-efficient, cost-effective solutions to market faster.

Alberto Guerra, Vice President, Strategic Market Development, Energy Saving Products Business Unit, IR, comments: “With the introduction of this extensive portfolio, IR is leveraging decades of IGBT design leadership to deliver high efficiency, robust modules serving a wide variety of industrial applications."

“The broad array of devices available in industry standard footprints enables designers to optimise power converter design for their specific system constraints,” adds Llewellyn Vaughan-Edmunds, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Energy Saving Products Business Unit, IR.

Available now in production quantities, the IRG5K50HF06A IGBT is priced from $30.10 each in 100 unit quantities.
