YOUNGWOOD, PA. Powerex is offering a series of trench-gate IGBTs to boost efficiency and reduce EMI in inverters, UPSes and industrial equipment. F-Series devices contain a freewheel diode with improved soft recovery characteristics, reducing power loss and noise generation by 30 percent over the company's earlier series.
The product range includes 50- to 600-A capability at 1,200 V, and 75 to 600 A at 600 V. Twenty-three devices are available for sampling, with mass production slated for the fourth quarter. Features include a reduction in saturation voltage to 1.6 V for 600-V devices and 1.9 V for 1,200-V units. All devices come in a low-inductance U-series package, in a price range from $33 to $200 in small quantities.
The company has also introduced the M57 hybrid IC driver for the F-Series which includes protection circuitry against shorts and initiates a soft shutdown without the need for detecting a drop in the collector-to-emitter voltage.
Samples of the M57160L-01 are available from stock, with production quantities in four to eight weeks. Price is $9.52 each in quantities of 100.
