Fairchild – New 600V IGBTs increase power density and meet stringent energy guidelinesSep 6 2012 - Semiconductors [More Semiconductors Articles]
Fairchild Semiconductor has expanded its Short Circuit Rated IGBT product offering to provide motor drive designers higher efficiency, increased power density and improved reliability for three-phase motor drive applications where low-losses and short-circuit ruggedness features are essential.
Available in low- to high-current ratings of 5A to 15A, the 600V IGBTs minimize power loss and reduce power dissipation with low VCE(sat) ratings while meeting stringent energy saving guidelines. The devices offer 10µs short-circuit withstand time (at VCE=350V, VGE=15V Rg=100ohm, Tj=150) and fast switching speeds to provide increased system efficiency.
As a part of Fairchild’s complete motor control solutions, the 600V IGBTs optimally perform when paired with the FAN7389 (active-high) and FAN73892 (active-low) monolithic three-phase gate-drive ICs, says the company.More news from Fairchild
