IGBTs utilize metal on polysilicon gate structure.

Press Release Summary:

POWER MOS 7(TM) 600 and 1200 V IGBTs are designed to replace 500/600 V and 1000/1200 V MOSFETs, respectively, in switch mode power supply, power factor correction, and other high-power applications. Units operate up to 150 kHz without current de-rating. IGBTs are available in two die sizes for 600 V and one die size for 1200 V, with and without anti-parallel diodes, in 10 die package combinations.

Original Press Release:

New Generation of IGBTs Offer Improved Power Density, Higher Efficiency, Lower Cost in Switch Mode Power Supply Applications

Bend, OR....Advanced Power Technology (NASDAQ: APTI) is announcing a new generation of 600 and 1200 volt IGBTs utilizing its advanced proprietary POWER MOS 7(TM) Technology. These new POWER MOS 7(TM) IGBTs can provide for lower cost, higher power density, and higher efficiency than MOSFETs in many switch mode power supply applications at frequencies up to 200 kHz. Utilizing APT's patented metal on polysilicon gate structure, the intemal chip gate resistance is one to two orders of magnitude lower than comparable industry standard polysilicon gate devices. This, combined with low gate charge and on-voltage, makes these IGBT devices extremely fast switching as well as having lower conduction losses.

The 600 volt IGBT's are designed to replace 500V/600V MOSFETs and the 1200 volt IGBTs are designed to replace 1000V/1200V MOSFETs in switch mode power supply (SMPS), power factor correction (PFC), and other high-power applications. The low plateau voltage and gate-drive voltage requirement is similar to a MOSFET. This allows larger die size power MOSFETs, or multiple MOSFETs in parallel to be replaced with just one POWER MOS 7(TM) IGBT. POWER MOS 7(TM) IGBT technology improves power density, system efficiency and reliability, and enables operation up to 150kHz without current de-rating. Conduction losses are dramatically lower, especially at high temperatures, and gate-charge is reduced.

In addition, POWER MOS 7(TM) IGBTs are available co-packaged with a fast-recovery, antiparallel diode optimized for low reverse recovery charge, further enhancing performance in power switching applications. Co-packaging the POWER MOS 7(TM) IGBTs with these rectifiers reduces EMI, switching losses, and conduction losses, while reducing component count and cost.

The POWER MOS 7(TM) IGBTs are available in two die sizes for 600 volts and one die size for 1200 volts, with and without anti-parallel diodes, in 10 die package combinations. Other products for both voltages will be introduced next quarter to cover a full range of power supply applications from 500 to multi kilowatts.
