ROHM introduces 1,200 V IGBTs for compressors and heater circuits

Electronic parts maker ROHM has announced four new automotive-grade 1,200 V-rated insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) for inverters used in electronics compressors and for switching circuits used in positive temperature coefficient (PTC) heaters. The IGBTs feature a short-circuit resistance of 10 μsec (Tj=25° C). ROHM says the devices’ unique structure reduces VCE(sat) to 1.70 V, which… Read more »

ROHM and GaN Systems collaborate to develop GaN semiconductors

Power semiconductor supplier ROHM and gallium nitride (GaN) power semiconductor specialist GaN Systems have partnered to develop new power electronics. Wordy? Yes. Interesting? It GaN be. The partnership will harness GaN’s expertise in power transistors along with ROHM’s established design and manufacturing capabilities in order to create new lines of compatible products. The new products will… Read more »
