IR Introduces Ultra-fast Switching, Rugged 600V High Frequency IGBTs for Automotive Power Supply Applications

by donpedro

International Rectifier introduced a highly innovative 600V automotive grade IGBT platform, COOLiRIGBT™ for use in a wide range of fast switching applications for electric (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) including on-board DC-DC converters, motor drives, and battery chargers. The new Gen. 1 COOLiRIGBT™ devices are capable of operating at the same fast switching speeds as MOSFETs while offering higher efficiency at high current levels. The first generation COOLiRIGBT™ devices cover a broad current range and offer a minimum short circuit rating of 5μs, low Vce(on) and positive Vce(on) temperature coefficient. Additional features common to the family include square reverse bias safe operating area (SRBSOA) and maximum junction temperature of 175°C. COOLiRIGBT™ also provides designers with the flexibility of selecting a diode with optimized performance for the application. The AUIRGC655A1N0 is optimized for main electric and hybrid vehicle inverters and large motor drives while the AUIRGC65A20N0 and AUIRGC65G20N0 are targeted for power supply and high switching frequency applications.
The new devices are all environmentally friendly and assembled with IR’s automotive grade bill of materials which are lead-free and RoHS compliant.
