International Rectifier (IR) recently introduced a line of rugged 1200V ultra-fast insulated bipolar transistors (IGBTs) optimised for industrial motor drive and UPS applications.

The IR's new IGBTs leverage IR's field stop trench ultra-thin wafer technology that delivers lower conduction and switching losses. Co-packaged with a soft recovery low Qrr diode. The devices feature a 10us minimum short circuit time rating and are optimised for rugged industrial applications.

"These new 1200V trench IGBTs feature very low Vce(on) and low switching losses while offering higher system efficiency and rugged transient performance for increased reliability, making them well suited to harsh industrial environments," said David Poon, IR's vice president, AsiaPac Sales.

The packaged devices cover a broad current range from 10 C 50A. Other key performance benefits include Tjmax of 150C, positive VCE(on) temperature coefficient for easy paralleling and low VCE(on) to reduce power dissipation and achieve higher power density. Die products are also available.
