High-power and high-frequency induction heating (IH) appliances require lower conduction losses and superior switching performance in order to achieve higher efficiency and system reliability in applications such as IH rice cookers, table-top induction cookers and inverter-based microwave ovens. Fairchild Semiconductor‘s high-voltage field-stop shorted-anode trench IGBTs provide designers with a highly efficient, cost-effective solution to these design challenges.
Ranging from 1100-1400V, this new product family is optimized with intrinsic anti-parallel diodes for soft switching applications. With advancements over the typical non-punch-through (NPT) IGBT technology, Fairchild’s shorted-anode silicon technology offers a lower saturation voltage of over 12 percent less than the same rating NPT-trench IGBT.
Additionally, when compared to the competitor’s IGBT offerings, this product family offers a lower tail-current rate of over 20 percent. These rich features allow Fairchild’s advanced IGBTs to provide better thermal performance, higher efficiency and reduced power losses.
Features and benefits include: High-speed switching frequency range: 10 to 50 kHz. The lowest tail-current in industry for improved switching losses (FGA20S140P). Lower saturation voltage drop than existing NPT trench IGBTs. Robust pot detection noise immunity for reliability. High-temperature stable behavior: Tj(max) = 175 degrees C. And RoHS compliant (Pb-free lead plating). These IGBS are offered in TO-3P 3L and TO-247 3L packages.
