IR Introduces Family of 600 V Automotive-Qualified IGBTs Optimized for Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Applications

23 OCTOBER 2011

International Rectifier has launched a family of automotive-qualified 600 V IGBTs optimized for variable speed motor control and power supply applications used in electric and hybrid vehicles.
The new devices cover a broad current range and offer a short circuit rating of ≥ 5μs, low Vce(on) and positive Vce(on) temperature coefficient for various motor drive systems from electric air conditioning to main traction inverters requiring high power density from 24 to 160A. Additional features common to the family include square reverse bias safe operating area (SRBSOA), integrated soft recovery diode and junction temperature of 175°C (max.).
Featuring low conduction and switching losses, IR’s new automotive –qualified family of 600 V IGBTs are ideally suited for a variety of variable speed motor control applications used in electric and hybrid vehicle platforms.
IR’s automotive IGBTs are subject to dynamic and static part average testing combined with 100 percent automated wafer level visual inspection as part of IR’s automotive quality initiative targeting zero defects. The new devices are all environmentally friendly and assembled with IR’s automotive grade bill of materials which are lead-free and RoHS compliant.

Datasheets, application notes and qualification standards are available on the International Rectifier website at
Spice models are available on request.
