IXYS 650V XPT™ High Speed Trench IGBTs
IXYS 650V XPT™ High Speed Trench IGBTs are designed to minimize conduction and switching losses, especially in hard-switching applications. IXYS 650V XPT™ High Speed Trench IGBTs are optimized for different switching speed ranges (up to 60kHz). Devices co-packed with IXYS ultra-fast Sonic-FRD™ diodes are also available. The current ratings of devices in this product family range from 30A to 200A at a high temperature of 110°C. These devices feature reduced thermal resistance, low energy losses, fast switching, low tail current, and high current densities. In addition, they display exceptional ruggedness under short-circuit conditions – a 10μs Short Circuit Safe Operating Area (SCSOA). Moreover these IGBTs have square Reverse Bias Safe Operating Areas (RBSOA) up to the breakdown voltage of 650V, making them ideal for snubber-less hard-switching applications. Other qualities include a positive collector-to-emitter voltage temperature coefficient which enables designers to use multiple devices in parallel to meet high current requirements and low gate charges which help reduce gate drive requirements and switching losses. Thanks to its speed and ‘soft recovery’ characteristics, the co-packed Sonic-FRD™ diode is an ideal match for these XPT™ IGBTs in reducing turn-on and turn-off losses. It is optimized to suppress ringing oscillations and voltage spikes in recovery, thereby producing smooth switching waveforms and significantly lowering electromagnetic interference (EMI) in the process. The temperature stability of its forward voltage also helps lower switching losses when devices are operated in parallel. The new IGBTs are well-suited for a wide variety of power conversion applications, including lighting control, battery chargers, motor drives, power inverters, power factor correction circuits, switch-mode power supplies, uninterruptible power supplies, E-Bikes, and welding machines.
