Selecting the best IGBT for an application can be confusing and time-consuming, so is it worth the time? In this article, we will attempt to simplify the selection process by providing an explanation for the trade-offs to be considered. To illustrate the benefits, the author will describe the performance improvement possible with a new generation of 600V IGBTs targeted for DC/AC inverter applications. By using optimised trench IGBTs, IR can improve efficiency or reduce system heatsink size or increase current density out of the same board ass embly.
