International Rectifier, IR ® (NYSE: IRF), a world leader in power management technology, today announced the introduction of the AUIRGP66524D0 and AUIRGF66524D0 automotive-qualified 600V IGBTs optimized for small auxiliary motor drive applications including air conditioning compressors for electric and hybrid vehicles. Leveraging IR's COOLiRIGBT™ platform and co-packaged with a soft recovery diode, the 24A AUIRGP66524D0 and AUIRGF66524D0 feature low V CE(ON) to reduce power dissipation and maximum junction temperature of 175°C to achieve extremely high power density. Available in a standard length lead TO-247 and long lead TO-247 package, the new devices also offer a minimum 6μs short circuit rating at 150°C. A square reverse bias safe operating area (SRBSOA) provides additional ruggedness. The devices are designed with a positive V CE(ON) temperature coefficient for easy paralleling for higher power applications. "The AUIRGP66524D0 and AUIRGF66524D0 deliver a rugged, efficient cost-effective solution to meet the demand of 600V motor drive applications used in today's electric and hybrid vehicles," said Ben Jackson, Principal Product Manager, Automotive IGBTs, Diodes and Modules.
