Ixys Corp. has announced the availability of a new line of IGBTs to provide a solution for applications requiring 1.7kV power switching.

Based on the company's rugged NPT technology, the devices are claimed to offer improvements in efficiency and reliability due to reduced voltage drop, lower switching losses and the need for fewer components.

The IGBTs are offered in versions for pulsed and fast switching applications up to 100kHz. They are rated from 6A to 32A and are housed in TO-247 discrete packages, as well as surface-mount TO-268s.

The "non-A" versions are suited to low frequency (<15kHz) applications that have a saturation voltage of 3V, increased gain to allow high current pulses with standard gate drive voltage, and a typical fall time of 300ns. They feature 900C current ratings of 6A to 32A and provide transient pulse current capability of 24A to 200A.

The "A" versions are intended for high voltage, fast switching applications up to 100kHz such as induction heating, induction cooking, 480Vac to 575Vac offline inverters, flyback power supplies, and UPS. They feature a fall time of <50ns.
