Press Release Summary:
Consisting of eight 600 and 1,200 V models, Half-Bridge IGBT Series features standard punch-through, Generation 4, and Generation 5 non-punch-through technologies for hard switching operating frequencies up to 60 kHz and greater than 200 kHz in resonant mode. Housed in Int-A-Pak packages, devices are optimized for isolated and non-isolated converters, switches, inverters, and choppers in high-frequency industrial welding, UPS, SMPS, solar inverter, and motor drive applications.
Original Press Release:
Vishay Releases New Series of Half-Bridge 600-V and 1200-V IGBT Modules with High Current Ratings from 75A to 200A in Int-A-Pak Package
Standard and Ultrafast Devices Offer Standard PT, Generation 4, and Generation 5 NPT IGBT Technologies for Hard Switching Operating Frequencies up to 60kHz, and >200kHz in Resonant Mode
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA - March 14, 2008 - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today launched a new series of half-bridge insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBT) in the industry-standard Int-A-Pak package. The series consists of eight 600-V and 1200-V devices that offer a variety of technologies for high hard switching operating frequencies in standard and Ultrafast speeds.
The eight new devices released today feature three different IGBT technologies to meet a variety of application needs. The GA100TS60SFPbF and GA200HS60S1PbF offer standard punch-through (PT) IGBT technology, while the, GA200TS60UPbF, GA75TS120UPbF, and GA100TS120UPbF devices utilize Generation 4 technology for tighter parameter distribution and high efficiency. The GB100TS60NPbF, GB150TS60NPbF, and GB200TS60NPbF modules offer Generation 5 non-punch-through (NPT) technology for the added benefit of 10µs short circuit capabilities.
The GA100TS60SFPbF and GA200HS60S1PbF are standard-speed devices optimized for hard switching operating frequencies up to 1kHz. The other six IGBTs are Ultrafast modules co-packaged with HEXFRED® ultra-soft-recovery anti-parallel diodes for use in bridge configurations. The Ultrafast devices are designed for high operating frequencies from 8kHz to 60kHz in hard switching, and >200kHz in resonant mode.
Featuring high current ratings from 75A to 200A with low power losses, Vishay's new IGBT series is optimized for isolated and non-isolated converters, switches, inverters, and choppers in high-frequency industrial welding, UPS, SMPS, solar inverter, and motor drive applications. For output inverter TIG welder applications, the IGBTs offer the lowest Vce(on) at rated current available in the market for "S" series modules.
The new IGBTs are lead (Pb)-free and provide simple, direct mounting to the heatsink. The devices offer low EMI for less snubbing, and provide very low junction to case thermal resistance.
Samples and production quantities of the new IGBT modules are available now, with lead times of eight weeks for larger orders. Pricing for U.S. delivery ranges from $42.00 to $72.71 depending on the model ordered.
