IGBTs are suitable for small motor drives up to 1kW

The trench and field-stop technology discrete device is optimised for applications that require a long lifetime, high reliability and efficiency, such as home appliances, general purpose drives in fans, pumps and other brushless DC motors, and industrial sewing machines.

A soft, fast recovery anti-parallel Rapid 1 diode is integrated for reduced losses. The building block for motor drives up to 1.0kW has a good thermal performance, says the company, especially at higher switching frequencies to improve reliability and design margins. Key features are very low VCE(sat) and Vf as well as a short-circuit protection capability of 3.0μsec. The 650V discrete device is optimised for switching frequencies ranging between 5.0 and 30kHz and suitable for applications that need to control the EMI noise efficiently.

The release covers the current classes from 8.0 to 15A in a TO-220FP package. Samples can be ordered now and other package types will be introduced 2019, says the company.
