Infineon Technologies AG has rolled out a 600V TRENCHSTOP Performance IGBT that promises to provide remarkable efficiency. The discrete IGBT claims to deliver high energy, reliability and price efficiency for applications such as air conditioning, solar PV inverters, drives and uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

Based on Infineon's TRENCHSTOP technology, the IGBT is optimised for hard switching topologies working at frequencies of up to 30kHz. The TRENCHSTOP Performance IGBT series combines the best trade-off between conduction and switch-off energy losses with outstanding robustness, 5μs short circuit capability and excellent electromagnetic interference (EMI) behaviour, detailed Infineon.

TRENCHSTOP Performance IGBT series

According to the company, the 600V 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 TRENCHSTOP Performance IGBT yields reduced losses of seven per cent at switching frequency of 8kHz. An 11 per cent lower total loss is delivered for switching frequency of 15kHz. Making use of the same packages, redesigns for higher efficiency and competitive cost can be realized easily, fast and with low efforts. The 600V TRENCHSTOP Performance IGBT contributes to more energy efficient power consumption, higher reliability and longer operational lifetime of the application. For end consumers this translates into a lower electricity bill, sustainability and environmental protection.

The TRENCHSTOP Performance IGBT is available.
