Powerex (www.pwrx.com) plans to offer IGBTs from 300A/1200V ̴ 800A/1200V in conventional packages, allowing customers an easy upgrade path for increased system ratings and/or improved reliability due to the increased allowable operating junction temperature.
Featuring 6th Generation Carrier Stored Trench-Gate Bipolar Transistor (CSTBT(TM)) silicon for significant performance improvement, these devices boast the lowest power loss on the market for increased customer system efficiency. The 6th Generation S-Series IGBTs, which are improved versions of the earlier 5th Generation A-Series and NF-Series IGBTs, are available in 3 compatible package styles:
CM300DY-24S (300A/1200V), package size 108mm x 62mm
CM450DY-24S (450A/1200V), package size 110 mm x 80mm
CM600DY-24S (600A/1200V), package size 110 mm x 80 mm
CM800DY-24S (800A/1200V), package size 140 mm x 130 mm
Product ratings and Characteristics -
6th Generation silicon devices feature:
Applications for these devices include industrial inverters, UPS systems, motor drives as well as fuel cell, wind and solar inverters.
CM450DY-24S and CM800DY-24S are presently in mass production with sample pricing ranging from $265 ̴ $463 in quantities of 10. CM300DY-24S and CM600DY-24S will be available in the second quarter of 2012.
