600V IGBTs optimised for welding applications

International Rectifier has introduced the IR66xx series of 600V Trench-gate Field Stop IGBTs. The devices feature low conduction and switching losses and are optimised for welding applications.

Utilising Trench thin wafer technology to offer lowest conduction and switching losses, the IGBTs are co-packaged with a soft recovery low Qrr diode and feature ultra fast switching (8-30KHz) with 5µs short circuit rating. They also feature low VCE(ON) and positive temperature coefficient for easy paralleling. The IR66xx series offers high switching frequency, maximum junction temperature of 175°C and low EMI for improved reliability, higher system efficiency and rugged transient performance.
