IR Expands Portfolio Of Rugged, Reliable 600V Trench Ultrafast IGBTs

International Rectifier, IR ® (NYSE: IRF), a world leader in power management technology, today announced the expansion of its family of 600V insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) with the introduction of the IRGP4640D, IRGP4650D and IRGP4660D. The new rugged, reliable devices are optimized for uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), solar, induction heating, industrial motor and welding applications.

The 40A IRGP4640D, 50A IRGP4650D and 60A IRGP4660D IGBTs utilize trench thin wafer technology to offer lower conduction and switching losses. Co-packaged with a soft recovery low Qrr diode, the new devices are optimized for ultra-fast switching (8-30kHz) with 5us short circuit rating, and feature low Vce(on) and positive Vce(on) temperature coefficient for easy paralleling.

“The introduction of these new devices underlines IR’s commitment to expanding its IGBT portfolio. The new IRGP4640D, IRGP4650D and IRGP4660D deliver a rugged, reliable 40-60A solution for designers looking to optimize system performance,” said Llewellyn Vaughan-Edmunds, IGBT Product Marketing Manager, IR’s Energy Saving Products Business Unit.

The new IGBTs are suitable for a wide range of switching frequencies and deliver higher system efficiency and rugged transient performance. They are offered in an industry standard TO-247 package, with a maximum junction temperature of 175 °C and low EMI for improved reliability.
