Infineon Technologies recently launched the 600-V TRENCHSTOP Performance IGBT to deliver high energy efficiency and reliability for a variety of applications, such as air conditioning, solar PV inverters, drives, and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). Based on Infineon’s TRENCHSTOP technology, the new IGBT is optimized for hard switching topologies working at frequencies of up to 30 kHz. The new TRENCHSTOP Performance IGBT series combines the best trade-off between conduction and switch-off energy losses with outstanding robustness, 5-µs short circuit capability, and excellent electromagnetic interference (EMI) behavior.
The 600-V TRENCHSTOP Performance is an attractive alternative to the predecessor TRENCHSTOP IGBT from Infineon as well as to competing products. In a plug-and-play replacement the new TRENCHSTOP Performance IGBT yields reduced losses of 7% at switching frequency of 8 kHz. An unmatched 11% lower total loss is delivered for switching frequency of 15 kHz. Making use of the same packages, redesigns for higher efficiency and competitive cost can be realized easily, fast and with low efforts. The 600-V TRENCHSTOP Performance IGBT contributes to more energy-efficient power consumption, higher reliability, and longer operational lifetime of the application. For end consumers this means lower electricity bills, sustainability, and environmental protection.
The TRENCHSTOP Performance IGBT is available now.
