IXYS Corporation (NASDAQ: IXYS) has announced a new high-power phase-leg in the SimBus-F outline with a total current/voltage capability of 600 Amps and 650 Volts.
The discrete 650 Volt XPT Trench IGBT products are now available in module outlines, up to 600 Amperes with the IXYS fast Sonic diodes. The XPT IGBT and Sonic diode are specifically designed for parallel operation in high-power modules.
“The new vertical gate design in combination with the XPT wafer processes result in low conduction losses. These low conduction losses benefit in all applications but have the highest impact in applications with lower switching frequencies, such as in the higher power range,” said Jeroen van Zeeland, head of marketing at IXYS Germany. “The short circuit rating of these modules gives flexibility to use them in demanding applications. The MIXD600PF650TSF self-limits the short circuit current at 2400 Amperes for 10 microseconds, giving the driver circuit enough time to detect the short circuit and turn off the IGBT.”
The MIXD600PF650TSF is designed for high-power control applications such as battery chargers, inverters, motor drives, electrical vehicles, elevators and other industrial applications.
