Powerex (Youngwood, PA) introduced two new additions to its low-inductance packaged U-Series IGBT product family. The CM800DU-12H is an 800A/600V dual package, and the CM400DU-24H is a 400A/1200V dual package.
The U-Series IGBTs incorporate third-generation H-Series IGBT process technology to provide a high efficiency IGBT switch combined with a newly designed free wheel diode which provides for softer recovery characteristics. The devices are available for sampling from stock with production quantities in 8 weeks. Sample price is $277 each for the CM400DU-24H.
