What does IGBT stand for?
IGBT stands for insulated gate bipolar transistor. Invented by C. Frank Wheatley Jr., IGBTs combine the simple gate drive characteristics of the MOSFETs with the high current and low saturation voltage capability of bipolar transistors. Hence, IGBTs have lower on-state voltage drop with high blocking voltage capabilities in addition to fast switching speeds.
