1350V IGBTs are optimised for soft-switching applications
Announcing an addition to the 1350V AlphaIGBT family, Alpha & Omega Semiconductor says that the AOK30B135W1 is optimised to deliver high performance by reducing switching loss in soft-switching home appliance applications.
The IGBT is designed with the patent-pending AlphaIGBT and features industry-leading low VCE (SAT) and a quick turn-off to ease power loss throughout the conduction and switching process. The exceptional BVCES rating and durable BV performance allow for enhanced safety voltage margin, says the company, to avoid substantial damage from voltage transients. Additionally, EMI is decreased as a result of soft turn-off current waveforms.
The IGBT with freewheeling diode in offered in a TO-247 package. The delay time is low, at less than 200ns.
