IXYS Discrete 600V XPT IGBTs
IXYS Discrete 600V XPT IGBTs are highly rugged, low loss semiconductor devices that are easily configured in parallel. Developed using IXYS' extreme light punch through (XPT) design platform, these new devices feature excellent electrical characteristics which include low typical Vcesat, low typical current fall times, and low typical turn-off energy per pulse values. They demonstrate exceptional ruggedness during switching and under short circuit conditions, achieved through a 10us short circuit safe operating area (SCSOA), dynamic avalanche ratings, and a square reverse bias safe operating area (RBSOA) rated up to the device's blocking voltage. These devices also feature an extended forward bias safe operating area (FBSOA), allowing for a "wider operating window" as dictated by the power limitations of the device.
IXYS Discrete 600V XPT IGBTs are available in two speed classifications, B3 and C3, which offer designers a more flexible approach to device selection regarding critical requirements such as switching frequency, saturation voltage, and cost. B3-Class devices feature an excellent balance between conduction and switching losses and are optimized for hard switching frequencies from 10kHz to 30kHz. C3-Class devices are optimized for minimal switching losses and are recommended for hard switching frequencies from 20kHz to 60kHz.
